Maintenance technicians are needed everywhere, including in healthcare. Many healthcare facilities prefer to have onsite maintenance technicians who can run daily maintenance to ensure everything in the building runs smoothly.
To qualify for advanced maintenance technician jobs, you need to be a jack-of-all-trades. Depending on the facility’s needs, applicants need a combination of plumbing, electrical, and mechanical experience. Some maintenance technician positions require applicants to know how to drive a fork lift or medical waste truck. Generally speaking, maintenance technicians must be able to lift 50 pounds, work with general tools, and tolerate standing or kneeling in awkward positions for long periods of time.
All maintenance technician jobs require at least a High School Diploma, and some prefer a technical certification or degree in a related field. However, many companies are willing to provide further training for their technicians, so if you have most, but not all of the experience necessary for a particular job, there is a chance you could be hired anyway and learn on the job. In fact, that is how most maintenance technicians learn their skills.
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, maintenance technician jobs are expected to grow 11% between 2010 and 2020. A good maintenance technician is an indispensable asset to any company, so there is a lot of job security. To find medical maintenance technician positions, visit the ADVANCE job board today!
