The Electronic Mechanic may specialise himself in the Radio/TV Trade or undergo additional training and gain work experience in the field of communication, transmission techniques or enter into the wide range of service on electronic control and computer equipment used in the offices or at the manufacturing industry, an institute together with the workshops (industries) in the country. This approach should avoid a one-sided theory background of the training and furthermore decreases the cost of training. Both the government, institute and the private sector shoulder (Training costs.)
It is expected that the practical knowledge will mainly be gained in the industries and the institute will concentrate on the theoretical back-ground by using lectures, experiments and practical exercises. In order to prepare the trainees for their first period in the industries, the training in the first year will already incorporate practical trade training in their e.g. Radio & TV and training institutions.
