    Hello Everyone, I'm wanting to get more knowledge about electronics. I'm thinking of taking a home study course as this is the only way I can study because of my work schedule. I sent for and received information CIE, Penn Foster and online offerings. I along with a friend of mine who's been in the electronics field for over 40 years decided on the one from Penn Foster. It's their Electronics Technician course. It's a step or so up from their basic electronics course. When comparing the courses we looked at what's taught and what the costs are. It looks like the course from Penn Foster offers the most. If anyone has any other suggestions please let me know before I commit to this course. Thanks, Fred

    There was a post on here the other day about a free online course from MIT.
