They are accountable for maintaining safety and cleanliness, along with sterile conditions in settings that demand it. They maintain inventory and compile records, oversee routine maintenance and testing, and report any issues or needed repairs. They are also responsible for ensuring FDA compliance or meeting other legal requirements as applicable.
Instrument technicians typically have at least a high school diploma, although an associate degree or specialized training related to instrumentation is preferred. They must be knowledgeable about any legal requirements that apply to their industry or work setting. These roles require meticulous attention to detail and strong organizational skills.
