I’ve chosen to experience for a week (13/04/2015-18/04/2015) as maintenance technician because I love everything manual and it corresponds to my personality as I like the mechanical and electrical works. I had to try my brother’s type of jobs because I always was curious about what he was doing. I would like to be in this business later because I find it exciting and promising.
There are two types of jobs as a maintenance technician: one in electrical engineering for industrial machines (such as electrical cabinets, control panels … ) and one in mechanics that specializes in large industrial machines (such as three-phase synchronous motors, electric rolling carpets … )
To do this job you must have a high-school degree or a B.A . It’s strenuous to start working early and finish late but advantageous to have useful mechanical and electrical knowledge. My opinion on the world of work is that it is hard but if we want to progress it is better to choose his profession.
