Basic Core Lessons:

You will find that most of CIE's courses are designed around a core of lessons that cover basic theories applicable to many areas of electronics and computer technology.

Courses 11 and 14B for instance, all contain the same initial 93 lessons that together comprise Course 1B. This is the course that teaches basic electronics, and goes on to increasingly more advanced lessons.

Intermediate & Advanced Level Electronics Courses:

For those individuals who already possess some electronics knowledge, CIE has designed several specific courses. Our intermediate level courses include courses 1A, 2, 4, and 5. Course 6, "Electronics Engineering," is an advanced level course. You can pick up where your previous electronics training left off, or update your present skills. Our non-laboratory courses can be the answer to upgrading your skills to the desired level.

A Programmed Approach to Learning:

CIE has a study method that's so good, so innovative, it's patented. It's called the AUTO-PROGRAMMED teaching method, and it did nothing short of setting a new standard for education through self-study. AUTO-PROGRAMMED lessons allow you to learn electronics one step at a time, and you determine the size of the step.

Practical, Hands-On Training:

As a CIE student, you can train on your own laboratory equipment, which assures you that you can practice whenever you like, and repeat experiments as often as you need, to master them.

Personalized Training From A Dedicated Faculty:

CIE's dedicated staff of instructors do more than just grade your exams; they help guide you, step-by-step, through your studies and hands-on training. They personally review each written lesson report. They'll encourage you when you're doing well, and give you support when you need it. Most importantly they'll see that every question you have receives careful consideration by one or more members of the staff.

You can be sure the response, whether it's a simple explanation or an in-depth theoretical discussion, will be prompt, courteous, and thorough.

On-line Instructor Chat Room:

CIE's instruction staff keeps regular office hours where you can talk to them live via the on-line chat room. Simply log on and ask an instructor a question right from your computer.

Convenient On-line Exams:

When you finish a lesson you can take your exam on-line on CIE's e-grade Web site anytime you want - day or night! Your test will be processed and your score e-mailed back to you.

Resources:

There is no formal campus or classrooms at CIE, but you will find all the educational resources of a traditional residential education center here. We provide the opportunity to purchase optional lab equipment and an array of school items...we publish our own school paper web site...we make membership available to an honor society and professional associations...lesson grading is available through faxing or take them on-line with our special e-grade site (www.study-electronics.com).

Textbook Buyback Program:

Some CIE lesson modules include textbooks that would qualify for our Textbook Buyback Program.

The Textbook Buyback Program would enable you to sell your textbooks back to CIE for tuition credit once you're finished with your learning module.

CIE has a Bookstore too

CIE Bookstore is where you will find a wide selection of self-paced courses, DVDs and labs covering PC Repair, Electronics, Computer Networking, A+ Technology, Photovoltaic Systems, PLCs & more!
