A Day in the Life: Electrical Technician
DATE On August 25, 2020

What does an electrical technician do, exactly?

Installing, repairing, calibrating, troubleshooting, and maintaining electrical systems are all part of my profession. My name's Emma, and as an electrical technician, I assist an electrician with their everyday tasks. In short, I help ensure everything is running smoothly for the client.

What is an electrical technician's typical day like?

Usually, I travel with the electrician to the worksite. It could be a home, office, or factory. Before every job, I make sure the area is safe and clear for us to work. I do whatever the electrician needs me to do, whether it's building a new part of the system or checking to see if a certain part is working. Critical thinking is a crucial aspect of my career as we are always trying to solve complex problems. Every electrical system is uniquely designed, which sometimes makes it difficult to narrow down which elements are faulty. However, I enjoy overcoming challenges and making the client's day a little easier. An electrical technician can also choose an area of focus and become an electronic assembler, outside lineman, engineering technician, or one of many other positions.
