Meeting evolving technology education challenges in photonics and optics
Author(s): William R Woodward

Paper Abstract

The rapid evolution of technology places great challenges on educators and employers to train and certify personnel in these technologies in a timely way. A cooperative effort between international standards organizations and the Electronics Technicians Association, International (ETA) is pioneering a new approach to meet the challenges of evolving technology education in the areas of photonics and optics. ETA recently introduced two optics certifications and two photonics certifications. Each of these certifications contains multiple knowledge and hands-on examinations that were developed specifically to meet the needs of industry.
