Mechanical Maintenance Technician

Mechanical maintenance technicians perform routine maintenance on power transmission and fluid power systems. Mechanical maintenance technicians also troubleshoot and repair problems in the system and install new machinery. Mechanical maintenance 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.
