A high level of expertise is needed to make sure that aircraft are serviced to rigorous quality and safety standards. An aircraft maintenance technician may specialize in vehicles like helicopters, UAVs (Unmanned Aeronautical Vehicles), or tilt wing aircraft. The skill calls for technical troubleshooting, repairing, and maintenance of all types of aircraft. As part of a growing and mobile global industry that is increasingly venturing into space, the aircraft maintenance technician will find that the sky is no longer the limit.
Maintaining modern vehicles is a highly skilled occupation that requires a thorough understanding of how they work. Automobile technicians must be able to work quickly and efficiently without compromising the high standards expected by employers and customers. They must also keep up-to-date with technological advances as modern vehicles get increasingly complex.
Vehicles scratched, dented, or damaged in accidents must be returned to the road in showroom condition, with the repaired areas exactly matching the rest of the exterior colour and quality. It could be said that the greatest tribute to a good car painter is when they have finished you cannot see what they have done.
Heavy Vehicle Maintenance
Heavy vehicle maintenance technicians must be able to work with internal combustion engines and components. This entails a knowledge of a variety of specific tools such as heavy equipment and power tools to diagnose problems, adjust, and repair faults. Work often must be done at speed, while observing strict safety standards if vital production time is not to be lost. The technician often works alone and is the link between the employer, the customer, and the manufacturer and can involve a degree of seniority at the highest level of performance.
Construction professionals work in teams on a wide range of projects, from pergolas and houses to bridges and skyscrapers. Construction involves reading and interpreting specifications, assembling frameworks, roofing and flooring, and installing windows, doors and fittings. Tasks can also include assembling prefabricated units, wiring electrical components, assembling and disassembling temporary structures such as barricades, braces, and scaffolding, controlling traffic in and around construction zones and a variety of other tasks.
