Our Jump Start Program

Are you interested in a career in the electronics industry in Nevada but lack the technical training to land even an entry-level job?

How would you like to get the education you need from a reputable, accredited program for a very reasonable investment? Would you like to supplement your classroom learning with hands-on experience?

What if that program could put you on track for a job with a stable company offering excellent benefits?

Sound too good to be true? Believe it. And it can be yours.

Thanks to JT3 LLC and the College of Southern Nevada (CSN), you can get the training you need to begin your new career. With a specialized Associate of Applied Science degree, you'll be ready to go straight to work for us as an Electronics Technician I.*
