He said he believes becoming certified has made him more prepared for his professional future . “I believe earning this certification has prepared me for the work that is to come , ” said Kohn . Obtaining a CET certification has proven to be a great benefit to TYAD . As more employees earn it , work becomes more efficient , customer satisfaction increases and it gives the depot a competitive edge against competitors . Depot officials state that employees receive a significant benefit from earning the certification as well as it keeps them up - to - date on current best practices in the industry and proves their commitment to the warfighter , who is the most important beneficiary . As employee confidence and commitment increases , warfighter satisfaction increases . Chief of the Avionics Division John Stochla said he believes those who choose to pursue a CET Certification will be set up for success today and into the future . “I believe education improves development on a personal level .

Some preparation methods include supervisory coaching , a study guide , a week - long refresher course and the ability to take the exam whenever the employee is ready within a two year span . Division Operations Manager Jeffery O’Neill said he believes earning the CET certification adds even more capabilities to TYAD’s already talented workforce . “Certified Electronics Technician certifications provide proof of your knowledge in the electronics field , ” said O’Neill . “We all need to challenge ourselves periodically , I would encourage anyone who is interested in additional information on the CET to reach out to your directorate POCs . ” Zuroski said although passing the exam was tough and required a lot of studying , it is very attainable to those who put in the effort . “I enjoy challenges , so obtaining the CET certification really gave me something to work for , ” said Zuroski . “Passing it definitely gave me a lot of personal gratification . ” Kohn echoed Zuroski’s sentiments , emphasizing that earning the certification is worth it and that people shouldn’t be deterred by the work . “You’re never going to become a jedi if you don’t pick up your lightsaber , ” said Kohn . “You have to know the book to pass the test , but earning the certification is very attainable . ” Employees interested in obtaining the CET self - paced study guide can reach out to the Employee Development Division at X56492 .
