Electronics for Service Engineers is the first text designed specifically for the Level 2 NVQs in Electronics Servicing. It provides the underpinning knowledge required by brown goods and white goods students, reflecting the popularity of the EMTA white goods NVQs. It has also been written in the light of the new EEB / City & Guilds Level 2 progression award (RVQ) for brown goods and commercial electronics, dubbed 'son of 2240', and the existing 2240 part 1.
The wide ranging experience of the authors makes this a readable book with much relevance to the real-life challenges of the service engineer. From simple mathematics and circuit theory to transmission theory and aerials, from health and safety to logic gates and transducers, the complete range of knowledge required to service electronic and electrical equipment is here. This practical emphasis makes the book ideal for existing service engineers seeking to gain an NVQ.
Numerous questions and worked examples throughout the text allow readers to monitor their own progress, and provide practice for C&G tests.
Joe Cieszynski and Dave Fox have a wide mix of experience, both in the field and workshop working on TV and audio, and teaching electronic servicing and security installation at MANCAT. Joe writes regularly for Television magazine.
