ETA offers both proprietary and non-proprietary certifications for Motorola and Channel Partner technicians. Motorola Solutions recommends that all technicians take the basic electronics Associate Certified Electronics Technician (CETa) - designated as CESa in Canada - exam prior to obtaining any of these certifications.
Many technicians are also choosing to achieve the full Journeyman-level CET (designated as CES in Canada) status by taking either the Wireless Communications (WCM) or the General Communications Technician - Level 2 (GCT2) certification. Others have gone on to attain Senior Status (CETsr) or even Master Status (CETma) level CET certification.
Please note that all examinees must register for training through Motorola Solutions for the Hands-On portion of the exams. ETA does not provide training. The written portion can be taken at one of ETA's many test sites around the world.
ETA has provided this page to help answer some of the most commonly asked questions about Motorola certification programs, as well as to help identify Motorola-specific resources for examination testing.
ASTRO® 25 Series registration is now being taken through the Motorola LMS system. You may register for one of these sessions at https://learning.motorolasolutions.com. Motorola Technicians who take the ASTRO® 25 Series as a Stand-Alone are not yet required to take the Associate CET exam. The ASTRO® 25 series cannot be earned at a Journeyman level due to the RNA and Console certification retirements.
ETA also offers the following certifications for Motorola Solutions technicians, Motorola Solutions representatives, and those invited by Motorola Solutions attempting to achieve ETA Journeyman Certified Electronics Technician (CET) status. The Associate CET (CETa) is a prerequisite for all Journeyman certifications as well as two or more years of experience.
