Electromechanical Technician is a growing field with a high demand. All manufacturing companies require someone to maintain equipment on the shop floor in order to reduce downtime. Electromechanical Technicians need a wide range of skills from electrical / hydraulic to PLCs and optical sensors to commercial wiring and everything in between.
The Electromechanical Technician Apprenticeship is a three-year program in which students attend courses in shortened semesters of only 8-weeks in the fall and spring. The rest of the year the apprentice receives electromechanical training from a dedicated mentor at the hiring company.
Students completing this program will earn an AAS degree in Manufacturing Technology, three NIMS credentials, a certification from the Department of Labor that they are fully qualified for their occupation, and three years of experience.
Electromechanical Technicians perform essential functions in manufacturing. They build, test, repair, adjust, train, and troubleshoot technical and electrical systems. This is a field of high demand, good pay, and excellent growth opportunities.
Salary Outlook: $27,309 to $75,785 (NOT a guarantee of salary – an estimated outlook in this industry.)
