Technician Jobs

Technician Job Overview

Maintenance technicians may work in several locations throughout a typical workday as they strive to solve problems and complete a number of tasks to maintain multiple buildings. They work in real estate, manufacturing, government, health care, social assistance and education. Technicians troubleshoot a variety of methods to fix problems. The most common job duties of a technician may include:

  • Maintaining machines, equipment, and buildings
  • Repairing machines and equipment when they have problems
  • Troubleshooting electrical devices and switches
  • Fixing electrical devices and switches
  • Performing preventative maintenance on a routine basis
  • Assembling machines
  • Setting up equipment
  • Planning repairs by implementing diagrams, computer images, or blueprint designs
  • Making and maintaining detailed records of completed work

Candidates who have a lot of patience and can work well by themselves may thrive as technicians. Technicians need to have strong dexterity, stellar customer service skills and excellent problem solving skills.

Technician Job Education Requirements

Most technician positions require candidates have at least a high school education. Few positions require that workers attain a higher education than that. However, technicians who wish to specialize and stand in the running for the best jobs should obtain training at a vocational school or trade school. Mechanical certifications are necessary for work with certain kinds of equipment.

Rather than achieving a high level of education, it’s more common for technicians to receive a great deal of on-the-job training, so they may start in entry-level maintenance worker positions and then work their way up to higher-paying jobs as their skill levels increase. Other maintenance jobs to consider are installation repair supervisor jobs or electrical maintenance supervisor jobs.

Technician Job Market

Between 2012 and 2022, the Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts a rather steady growth in the demand for technicians. In fact, it estimates a growth of 9 percent in technician jobs, which is around the same rate of increase for all occupations. There are currently around 1,325,100 Americans working as technicians, and that number is estimated to rise to around 1,450,300 in 2022. That means that 125,200 or so new technician jobs will be created.

Technician Job Salary Information

Technicians earned a median annual salary of $35,210 in 2012. The top earners who worked as technicians earned more than $57,260 per year, while the lowest earners in the position earned under $20,920. Those who stick with this career path should be able to command a higher salary as they improve their skills and gain more experience to bulk up their resumes.
