Fluid Systems Technician

Fluid systems technicians perform routine maintenance on fluid power systems. Fluid systems technicians also troubleshoot and repair problems in the system and install new seals and bearings. Fluid systems technicians should be able to read schematics, use hand and power tools and inspection and testing instruments, and understand the components of a system, how those components function, and what tasks are required to keep them in working order.
