Abstract: This study was designed to develop a re-training programme for electronic technicians in basic electronic troubleshooting and repairs. Three research questions and two hypotheses were formulated to guide the conduct of the study. A descriptive research survey design was used for the study. A simple random sampling was used to select 150 respondents comprising of 50 electrical/electronic teachers and 100 master craftsmen as a population for the study. A structured questionnaire containing 67 items developed by the researchers and validated by experts from Industrial and Technology Education Department was used for data collection. The data collected was analyzed using mean, standard deviation; while t-test statistics was used to the hypotheses at 0.05 level of significant. The findings among others revealed that roadside technicians need training in the following areas: Identification of basic electronic component and their functions used of voltmeters to measured voltage or resistance of any components in an electronic device and analysis of electronic components and various principle of signal tracing. Based on the findings it was recommended that adequate training should be given to roadside technicians in the area of identification of basic electronic component and their functions and government should frequently organize vocational training for the roadside technicians virtually every year.
