I used to be an electronics technician in the US Navy. When I enlisted I didn't know the first thing about electronics so they sent me to school for a couple of years. The first school I attended was a self paced modular course that I had to complete in 21 days. It provided me with a solid base that eventually led to me working on a radar system that landed jet aircraft automatically on the deck of a carrier and then onto traveling the world to work on escalated problem resolution with just about any kind of electronic equipment.  I still love radar tho. Anyway,  I found the same introductory course available online. It doesn't drill down into the nitty gritty of design principles, but it is definitely worthy. Check it out.

Heh, I'm currently an electronics technician, aviation side of the house.

It is nice to see that the Navy has "declassified" some of their more basic documentation (i.e. NEETS modules in general).

Link to module 15 is broken. I guessed the correct one :)

Yes, ignore any commas that were put into the actual hyperlinks.
