ATM Repair Course and Training Information

Aspiring ATM (automated teller machine) repairers can gain necessary skills by taking courses in general electronics repair. However, those interested specifically in ATM repair often gain training on the job, especially by shadowing an experienced electronics field technician. This article discusses some common courses that prospective ATM repairers might take.

Essential Information

Courses that cover ATM repair are typically found in certificate or associate degree programs in general electronics repair or electronics technology, which are offered at numerous colleges and technical schools. Individuals interested in ATM repair may enroll in these types of programs and/or have a significant background in electronics.

List of Common Courses

The most commonly offered courses in electronics programs are described below.

Introduction to Electronics Course

This course provides an introduction to electronics theory and various electronic components. Topics include electric currents, circuitry, power supplies and testing equipment. Some programs include a laboratory component, during which computer simulations stand in the place of electronic workstations and their components.

Techniques in Electronics Servicing and Troubleshooting Course

Students experience firsthand the electronic devices and equipment they might service in the field, such as automated teller machines and office equipment. They learn to read schematic diagrams and troubleshoot electronic issues common in these machines. Laboratory sessions allow the practice of diagnosing and repair techniques.

Electronic Circuitry Course

This course addresses both alternate (AC) and direct circuitry (DC). Instruction focuses on the construction and function of electronic circuitry found in electronic equipment, such as ATMs. Students learn to use electronic models to analyze and solve electronic circuitry issues.

Advanced Electronics Course

Lessons focus on devices such as semiconductors and their role in circuitry found in modern electronic equipment, including ATMs. Instruction addresses diodes, amplifiers, transistors and oscillators. A laboratory component is usually combined with instruction lectures.

Training Options in ATM Repair

ATM repair technicians usually receive basic knowledge and generalized training through a certificate or associate degree program. Then, many employers provide additional on-the-job training to teach technicians to service their specific ATM equipment. However, professional organizations like the Electronics Technicians Association, International (ETA-I) and the International Society of Certified Electronics Technicians (ISCET) offer certification options that also provide training for aspiring technicians or working technicians that want to advance their careers. Both organizations offer the Associate Certified Electronics Technician certification, which is an option for electronics technicians with less than two years of experience and a requirement before taking the more advanced Journeyman Certified Electronics Technician exam, also offered by both the ETA-I and the ISCET.
