  • Penn Foster made my goal easily attainable while working a full-time job. I've always been a "Tech Freak" and love to know what makes the world go round. Now I have the credentials to find employment in the career field of "endless opportunities." Thanks to the wonderful staff at Penn Foster, I will further my education here, because "I will never become too old to learn" :) Getting an education in my remote location was simply awesome. They sent all the courses and parts to me overseas. They even sent a digital training suitcase for building/running/troubleshooting circuit experiments.

  • This is an excellent way to either learn the basics or refresh your skills in electronics at your pace. Textbooks are easy to understand and the skill kits really made the experience well worth it! This is not the first program I have taken with Penn Foster. I have been enrolled in career diploma and degree programs since 1996. Great credentials.

  • The Electronics Technician Program allowed me to complete my basic qualifications as an Instrument & Control Technician with my employer. This program is very beneficial to any job involving electronics, covering basic electronics to the intermediate level. My experience with Penn Foster has been very educational, and I look forward to another opportunity with this institution.
