Information on how to replace a transistor is typically taught in basic electronics courses as part of an electronics training program. Examples of courses include Electronic Devices and Circuits, Electrical Circuit Analysis, Fundamentals of Electronics and Solid State Devices.
Electronics courses teach students the basic skills needed for them to understand electronic devices, such as transistors, fiber optics, amplifiers and transducers. Students gain knowledge in how describe, classify, use and troubleshoot these devices. For example, the Fundamentals of Electronics course at Dallas County Community College teaches students how to build and test circuits and how to check transistors using a multimeter.
