Job Description for Electrical Technician
Electrical technicians install, repair, and maintain electrical equipment. They must have a working knowledge of federal and state regulations as they apply to electrical equipment, and they must stay current on safety practices. Electrical technicians perform a variety of functions, but they are above all responsible for ensuring that electrical equipment runs smoothly. If equipment fails, the first priority of the technician is to repair it as quickly, efficiently, and safely as possible. An electrical technician may calibrate, troubleshoot, inspect, clean, modify, upgrade, or even uninstall electrical equipment. In addition to the equipment, technicians may also work with wiring, voltage, or even forklifts and loaders. Most electrical technicians work in a factory or production-type atmosphere, though this is not always the case.Read More...
