Heavy Vehicle Technology
Heavy vehicle technicians repair and maintain large stationary and mobile machines, and industrial equipment in environments that include transportation, mining, agriculture, and forestry.
Heavy vehicle technicians must be able to work with internal combustion engines and components. This entails a knowledge of a variety of heavy equipment and power tools in order to diagnose problems, make adjustments, and repair faults. This often has to be done at speed while observing strict safety standards if vital production time is not to be lost. Technicians often work alone and are the link between the employer, the customer, and the manufacturer so it involves a degree of seniority at the highest level of performance.
Population and business growth result in the construction of more residential and office buildings, roads, bridges, and other infrastructure, creating a steady demand for mobile heavy equipment mechanics.
