A maintenance mechanic is responsible for the upkeep of buildings and mechanical systems, such as heating and cooling systems. In some cases, maintenance mechanics split their time between repair, maintenance, and the installation of system components and office hours. Additionally, maintenance mechanics are expected to perform emergency repairs, which necessitates the ability to troubleshoot promptly. Maintenance mechanics typically work with large production machines, usually in factories.
A high school diploma along with successful completion of a vocational school is suitable for maintenance mechanic positions though more complex tasks may require additional licenses. Successful maintenance mechanics possess excellent computer, mechanical and troubleshooting skills.
