Computer Repair Technician - Computer Repair Training

The world’s increasing dependence on computers shows no sign of slowing down, whether in the home or at theComputer Repair Technician Training workplace. Consequently, the need for computer repair technicians is expected to keep growing.

The median annual wage for computer, repairers was $36,620 in May 2012.(Source: BLS)

Requirements of Computer Repair Technicians

Computer repair technicians service mainframe, server, and personal computers; printers; and disc drives. These workers perform primarily hands-on repair, maintenance, and installation of computers and related equipment.

The life of a computer repair technician usually involves moving around. When equipment breaks down, many computer repair technicians travel to customers’ workplaces or other locations to make the necessary repairs. These workers, known as field technicians, often have assigned areas in which they perform preventive maintenance on a regular basis.

Knowledge of electronics is necessary for anyone wanting to become a computer repair technician. And increasingly, employers prefer workers who are certified as repairers or who have training in electronics from associate degree programs, the military, vocational schools, or equipment manufacturers.

Employers and Computer Repair Technicians

Employers generally provide some training to new computer repair technicians on specific equipment; however, workers are expected to arrive on the job with a basic understanding of equipment repair. Employers may send experienced workers to training sessions to keep up with changes in technology and service procedures.

Newly hired computer repair technicians may work on personal computers or peripheral equipment. With experience, they can advance to positions maintaining more sophisticated systems, such as networking equipment and servers.

Because of their familiarity with equipment, experienced computer repair technicians have been known to move into customer service or sales positions. Some experienced workers open their own repair shops or become wholesalers or retailers of electronic equipment.
