The Associate Certified Electronics Technician CETa is designed for encompassing the basic electronics theory and applications used in all electronics disciplines including electrical theory, test equipment, circuits, telecommunications basics, and work procedures.
The CETa also has an optional hands-on component that can be used as a part of the training process and will be noted upon completion and passing of the CETa examination. Once a technician has completed the four year term, they should specialize and take a Journeyman option. To apply, you must fill out the rollover formand send a copy of your BEE certificate showing all four modules checked and up-to-date to ETA via fax or email. Retakes must be completed within one year of the first exam session.
You will have 6 months to complete the content. These courses are for self-study or certification maintenance purposes only, and do not lead to certification.
The Basic Systems Technician BST stand-alone certification is for individuals trained in the basic foundational levels of electronics used in troubleshooting systems and their functions without the need for component circuit analysis. The intent is to introduce a foundation of skills in a wide variety of electronic industries needed by technical personnel to advance their competency and efficiency with their work endeavor.
If not specifically stated, the most recent technical standard revision is referenced. The purpose of this is to align with a growing portion of the electronics education industry that is charged with providing electronics training that does not include the total content of traditional basic electronics courses. In some instances, technical institutions are asked to provide training in only certain areas of electronics.
This is so companies that need only narrower skills and knowledge than one expects of a complete Associate CET can employ workers who have required knowledge and skills for only the technology and processes used at that company.
Hands-on skills exam components are available. The technician may also choose to gain only those modules needed in order to be employable. The Electronics Modules are also a great retention tool. The SET can be used for program assessment as well.
The SET also has an optional hands-on component that can be used as a part of the training process and will be noted upon completion and passing of the SET examination.

Methane can be described as carbon dioxide on steroids when its effect as a climate change gas is considered. Methane emissions have at least 25 times the warming potential of CO 2 emissions when climate impacts are counted over the longer term. Analysis shows that with adoption of transformation policies such as Zero organic waste to landfills by New Zealand could reduce kt CO 2 -e pa of greenhouse gas emissions by This is a critical foundation of circular economies.

The current estimate of total amount of methane collected and used as biogas in New Zealand is around 50 megawatts MW e. That's enough energy to power 40, households, although most of the current biogas produced is used for heat and electricity in industry-scale applications. There is potential to increase rural biogas generation from food and animal waste. Increased separation of organic material from the waste stream could lead to the development of dedicated bio-reactors.
Biogas is a type of bioenergy derived from organic waste and increasing our use of bioenergy is good for the economy — providing economic growth through improved land use, businesses and employment, particularly in rural communities. The biomass and organic waste are co-products of food production, wood and food processing and community living.
These are valuable renewable natural resources which can be utilised for the production of valuable biobased products including: bioenergy, biofuels, biochemical, bio-based materials, engineered wood products, compost and assist achieve environmental outcomes including reduction of greenhouse gas emissions, reduction in waste disposal costs, clean waterways, and resilient soils.

In recent years the EU's international trade policy has provoked considerable controversy and intense public debate across the continent. If you want to know what's happening in Europe today, independent and objective information is crucial. Watch our editor-in-chief Koert Debeuf explain the reasons in this second video. There is no acronym yet for this southern hemisphere deal so it doesn't have the notoriety of the aforementioned cases, but recently both came on the agenda of the European Parliament so now is the time to take a close look at what they mean for citizens in both hemispheres.
The Commission's justifications for the need to open free trade talks generally involve a vague mantra of promises including economic growth, jobs, and competitiveness.
However, the reality we've seen from the previous experiences as well as other EU trade talks, such as Singapore and Vietnam, is that big business interests stand to gain the most. The case of Australia and New Zealand is no exception.
A key reason for this is something called regulatory cooperation, a cornerstone of most EU trade deals. These days, trade agreements are no longer about reducing tariffs.
They aim to reduce what trade negotiators and big business likes to call 'barriers to trade' which basically means differences in laws, regulations or standards. These standards are very often in place for good reasons such as the protection of public health, workers, food safety, or the environment.
But now deemed to be a barrier to trade, governments are urged to harmonise them through regulatory cooperation, essentially tearing up the laws and putting corporate profit over people's needs. On top of all this is the fact that under the regulatory cooperation system, new corporate-friendly lower standards are generally established early on in the legislative process, away from the scrutiny of citizens.
Those privy to the process tend to be trade bureaucrats and experts from multinationals, offering enormous power to the private sector to decide on public interest legislation. Indeed, regulatory cooperation means big corporations get advance notice on new legislation, helping them to step in and wield crucial early influence. As we all know, a business's first goal is to maximise profit so we cannot expect such a corporate-captured process to facilitate the development of adequate rules on labour rights, the environment or agriculture.
Both Australia and New Zealand have an aggressive, export-focused agricultural sector, largely because of extensive, large-scale holdings. Removal or lowering of tariff and non-tariff barriers and full access to the large EU market will most probably be of great advantage to them over smaller EU farmers.
Meanwhile, access to the relatively small markets of New Zealand 4. All of this points to more general problems with the free trade agreements being negotiated by the EU right now.
Putting corporate before public interests seems to be the Commission's default position and we can see from the negotiating mandate for talks with Australia and New Zealand that industrial scale agriculture and the corporate sector in general will once again be in the driving seat.
The Commission is largely continuing business as usual with the dangerous ideological notion that: what is good for big business is good for society.
Standards will come under pressure. At this early stage of course, we don't have the full picture but decades of experience of trade negotiations providing industry with the means to chip away at progressive policies does not signal that better standards are on the way. Nevertheless, if the outcry over TTIP taught us anything, it's that we are not powerless. Campaigners exposed investor state dispute settlement ISDS - a system through which investors can sue governments over policies that impact their profits in private courts - for the pernicious, anti-democratic concept that it is.
InCanberra introduced its trailblazing health laws to remove branding from cigarette boxes. Global tobacco company Philip Morris was able to take the Australian government to an international court of arbitration using the ISDS mechanism, and demand compensation for future profits lost due to reduced cigarette sales. ISDS became "the most toxic acronym in Europe", according to EU trade chief Cecilia Malmstrom but rather than jettison the loathsome idea, the Commission basically rebranded it.The negotiations were concluded in August All 28 European Union member states approved the final text of CETA for signature, with Belgium being the final country to give its approval.
The European Commission indicates the treaty will lead to savings of just over half a billion euros in taxes for EU exporters every year, mutual recognition in regulated professions such as architects, accountants and engineers, and easier transfers of company staff and other professionals between the EU and Canada. Proponents of CETA emphasize that the agreement will boost trade between the EU and Canada and thus create new jobs, facilitate business operations by abolishing customs duties, goods checks, and various other levies, facilitate mutual recognition of diplomas and regulate investment disputes by creating a new system of courts.
The support, however, has waned when compared to the poll conducted in The TIEA was intended to move beyond traditional market access issues, to include areas such as trade and investment facilitation, competition, mutual recognition of professional qualifications, financial services, e-commerce, temporary entry, small- and medium-sized enterprises, sustainable developmentand sharing science and technology. The TIEA was also to build on a Canada-EU regulatory co-operation framework for promoting bilateral co-operation on approaches to regulatory governance, advancing good regulatory practices and facilitating trade and investment.
In addition to lowering barriers, the TIEA was meant to heighten Canadian and European interest in each other's markets. The negotiations were concluded on 1 August Completion, translation of the final text into 24 EU languages, and ratification is expected to take years since the passage of the deal requires approval of the European Parliament and the European Council as well as Canada and the individual 28 EU member states as well.
Going south? EU and Australia/New Zealand deal
At the sectoral level, the study predicts the greatest gains in output and trade to be stimulated by services liberalization and by the removal of tariffs applied on sensitive agricultural products; it also suggests CETA could have a positive social impact if it includes provisions on the ILO's Core Labour Standards and Decent Work Agenda. Canada and the EU have a long history of economic co-operation.
As an integrated bloc, the EU represents Canada's second largest trading partner in goods and services. Many of its provisions on copyright were initially thought to be identical to the controversial ACTAwhich was rejected by the European Parliament in The European Commission has indicated  that this is not the case.
Part of the Agreement is stricter enforcement of intellectual property, including liability for Internet Service Providersa ban on technologies that can be used to circumvent copyright. These are just the copyright provisions. There are sections dealing with patents, trademarks, designs, and coming soon geographical indications. These include:. On 22 Octoberfive Polish NGOs criticized the secrecy surrounding the negotiations, the similarities to ACTA, and demanded more disclosures about the negotiations from the Polish government.
In addition to the interests of the pharmaceutical and software industries CETA encourages to prosecute "Camcording" the so-called "film piracy", Art. Especially the negotiations on food exports lasted very long.
The interests connected with European cheese exports and Canadian beef exports led to a protection of these kinds of intellectual properties and long lists of "Geographical Indications Identifying a Product Originating in the European Union" pp. CETA does not necessarily alter EU non-tariff barriers such as European regulations on beef, which include a ban on the use of growth hormones, but it could do so.
Given the cooperation mechanisms institutionalized through the Agreement,   this cannot be ruled out. Both the EU and Canada will retain the right to regulate freely in areas of public interest such as environmental protection, or people's health and safety. Those rules helped protect jobs in fish plants, especially in rural areas hit hard by the cod moratorium, which was instituted in The Czech Republic, Romania and Bulgaria had declared they would not endorse the agreement, in effect scuppering the entire agreement, until the visa requirements for their citizens entering Canada were lifted.
