Working as an Electronics technician is a valuable and necessary part of today’s world. But how do you know if this is the right career for you? Do you enjoy working with your hands? Good with computers, wires, or other tech items? If you answered YES, you may be the right fit for this career path!

Here are a few more reasons why this may be the work for you.

The Work is Engaging and Involves Movement

Many people dread a workplace that is repetitive or requires them to stay in the same place all day. Want something new and challenging? As an Electronics Technician, you’ll work on sound systems, security systems, computer systems, or network servers. You might even do it all in the same day!

The Pay is Strong and Steady

The U.S. Bureau of Labor gives an average of $27.51 per hour for technician work, with many jobs paying over $50,000 annually. This type of work tends to be needed consistently since there will always be a need for maintenance or repairs in any complicated computer system.

Increasingly Digital World Requires More Technicians

The increased reliance on computers and electronic systems (like security systems) means that the world will continue to need more technicians. Digitized machines (like slot machines at the casinos) require more and different repairs than purely mechanical machines of the past. And, for example, as the LSU School of Medicine acquires more advanced equipment, they’ll need more technicians to both install and repair these systems over time.

Other industries, from advanced manufacturing to energy production, in and around Shreveport are adding electronic components to make their work more rapid, but they’ll always need the human element to keep those systems running.

This Work Offers Flexibility

Installers and dealers in home security systems can often become sub-contractors within a larger company and set their own schedules as Electronics Technicians. While many jobs are more traditional with salary or wages, Electronics Technicians can use their skills to start their own businesses that work with a variety of clients in the Shreveport, Louisiana area.

Training Can Be Done Quickly

It doesn’t take ages to become an Electronics Technician! At Ayers Career College, you’ll be ready for your new career after a short 36-week course. As part of your program, you’ll even take a Career Development course to help transition from the program to the work you are most interested in doing.
