This job is often done in an independent manner, although some teamwork is needed - for example, communicating with colleagues regarding any problems with instrumentation that arises. It is important for the instrument and electrical technician to be familiar with various monitoring and control systems (including electronic, pneumatic and hydraulic systems). The technician may also have to install new instrumentation and electrical systems, so it is important to stay up to date with new developments in the field.
Usually, a minimum of an associate’s degree with a focus in process instrumentation or electrical technology is necessary. Previous experience is generally required or preferred as well. This is often a full-time job, and some positions require the technician to be on call to fix problems during any hour of the day. (Copyright 2019 PayScale.com)
