Occupational Profile

The broad purpose of the occupation is to provide specialist Electrical & Electronic technical support for engineers, so that organisations can develop, produce or test new/existing products, processes, or procedures to meet a customer specification in terms of quality, cost and delivery, as efficiently and effectively as possible. Electrical & Electronic Technicians gather information and data from a range of sources and analyse the information/data. They will make decisions, solve problems and produce and/or update Electrical & Electronic technical documentation, reports or specifications covering areas such as quality, reliability, production schedules/ targets, costing or other technical documentation that informs others, either internally or externally what needs to be done such as how a product must be designed, manufactured, tested, modified, maintained, stored, transported, commissioned or decommissioned.
