The development of Electronics Technology program standards is a significant step for
technical education and economic development in Georgia. These standards represent a
statewide commitment to provide consistent, quality technical education, to equip our
graduates with the background and skills necessary to meet their individual occupational
needs, and to meet the currently expanding needs of the Georgia employment market.

Many people have contributed time, effort, and expertise to the standards development
project. The Georgia Board of Technical and Adult Education, the Board's Standards and
Programs Committee, the standards development committee, and the project staff have
worked diligently to make the establishment of these standards a reality. Robert Mabry, Doug
Bolen, and Patt Stonehouse of the Georgia Department of Technical and Adult Education have
provided direction for the project. Walter Sessoms, in his past role as Board's Standards and
Programs Committee chairman, contributed leadership, motivation, and insight to the
standards project. Fred Kiehle, Coordinator of Educational Program Operations, has also
provided assistance in planning and monitoring the project.

These efforts have been sustained by the commitment of the Board's Standards and Programs
Committee whose members each brought special concern and expertise to the standards
development project. William Wiley, present committee chair, has assumed the leadership role
with the energy and integrity that will assure successful progress of the standards development
process.

We extend sincere thanks to each member of the Board's Standards and Programs Committee
below.

Special recognition should also be given to the standards development committee who worked
to create the Electronics Technology program standards. Without the cooperation of Georgia
business and industry representatives who donated their time and energies to the project, these
standards would not have been possible. We recognize and thank each member of the
Electronics Technology State Technical Committee for their invaluable contribution to the
development of the program standards.

The Occupational Working Committee, composed of educators from the technical institutes
and State Technical Committee members, provided direct technical support and expertise in
the development of the program standards. The members of this committee were
indispensable in the development of the program standards. We recognize and thank the
educators who participated on the Occupational Working Committee.

We would like to recognize Augusta Technical Institute and Alice Frye for their preliminary
effort in developing the proposal for an Electronics Technology program, which provided the
foundation for the program standards.

We would also like to thank all the other business, industry, and educational leaders who
contributed to the development of statewide standards through service as technical experts in
the standards information network. In addition, we thank Terri Bickley for editorial
assistance, and DeAnna Palmer for electronic publishing assistance.
