Globally Recognised Qualifications

Through the last 2 decades of operation A.S.T.I has distinguished itself in the various telecommunication and electronics fields. As such from our starting point as a small training school in Fibre Optics we have built our institution, attaining recognition both locally, regionally and internationally from some of the most outstanding accrediting bodies: 

1) Accreditation Council of Trinidad and Tobago – (ACTT)

This represents our local certification as the ACTT is responsible for accrediting post secondary and tertiary level institutions/programs in Trinidad and Tobago. They consider the holistic characteristic of an organization and its capacity to deliver education by analyzing its administrative strength, academic policies, staff quality, physical faculties and financial stability. Their accreditation is also on a renewal basis (as all of our accreditations are) thus A.S.T.I is subjected to a continuous process of development, innovation and improvement.

2) Electronics Technician Association (international) – (ETA)

One of our more popular accreditations for our certificate programs and has been our staple program accreditor for over a decade. The ETA however has been around far longer. The ETA has been providing quality training and regulations since its founding in 1978. Since then they have grown to become the international organization for the training and accreditation for technicians in the Western Hemisphere especially. They represent not just the electronic industry as a whole but every stage, from the technician to the educator and corporate institution. With an alumni of over 200,000 technicians through an astonishing 90 programs in various fields of technology from aviation to renewable energy, ETA recognition is the aspiration for the modern technician. ETA, similar to ASTI, has recognized the importance of the skilled labor force and seeks to arm them with the knowledge an skillset that the industry craves but ETA graduates are not limited: their occupation ranges from students and beginner installers to college professors, journeyman technicians, and company chairmen. Their certification programs through centers such as ourselves verify that the technicians have the technical knowledge and skill to meet international electronics industry standards (inclusive of knowledge of equipment, troubleshooting, regulations and safety).

3) Education and Quality – (EduQual)

This represents our current direction of certification, moving from a solely technical capacity and allowing re-entry into the academic system. EduQual allows graduates to attain credits that can be levied toward certificate, diploma and degree programs. EduQual is a renowned accreditation body with a global presence in the Americas, Europe, Asia and Africa. EduQual qualifications are recognized by universities, professional membership bodies, and stakeholders locally and internationally. This is why students who hold EduQual certification can leverage it toward diploma and degree programs internationally. For example within the UK holders of EduQual qualifications can upgrade to degrees in several universities such as:

  • Anglia Ruskin University
  • Bath Spa University
  • Binary University of Business and Entrepreneurship (Malaysia)
  • University of Bedfordshire
  • University of Chester
  • University of Dundee
  • University of East London
  • Edinburgh Napier University
  • London Metropolitan University
  • Newman University
  • University of Northampton
  • University of South Wales

Note: The above university names may seem familiar in Trinidad as they certify several other schools/programs locally. Whereas we are recognized by the international framework that governs them, essentially placing us on par with them in accreditation. 

EduQual qualifications also provide exemptions in several fields such as (but not limited too):

  • Association of International Accountants
  • Institute of Financial Accountants

EduQual holders can also apply for member ship in a variety of professional registers such as:

  • Medical Industry Accredited
  • Electronic Technician Association
  • Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers
  • Joint Council of Cosmetic Practitioners
  • Reptrax (IntelliCentrics-Secure)
