Job Description for Computer Technician

A computer technician is a broad term for a career that includes many different jobs. Technicians start out with the same basic education, requiring a course to receive A+ Certification, and then branch off into specialized areas, such as repair technicians, who are trained in the basics of the structure of a computer. They inspect computers so that they can diagnose a problem and find a solution. Usually, computer techs will repair or replace a damaged part, or they will update or change software. They can work as independent technicians, as a part of a business, or, most commonly, in a store that offers computer repairs. Network technicians install and maintain computer networks for both hardware and software. They monitor networks, installing software patches and reallocating resources in order to meet the needs of the network. They must designate the best area to set up the network equipment, and are responsible for setting networks up, and repairing them if they break down. Help desk technicians are like repair technicians, who work in call centers or designated departments. They aren't responsible for any physical repairs, but they troubleshoot software and network problems to the the best of their ability.  Server computer technicians install and manage servers. They must determine how many servers will be necessary, what features they will include, and what the infrastructure will look like. They also repair server errors and maintain security.
