Technicians are highly-qualified workers performing highly specialized and technical jobs in a variety of industries (computers, maintenance, pharmacy and medicine, dental or veterinary). Depending on the industry or employer's needs, a technician may work indoor or outdoor, independently or under supervision.
According to position requirements, technicians may need only a high-school diploma, a qualification certificate or post-secondary education. Manual dexterity and technical skills are the most important requirements to a technician position. Attention to details, team working, time management, communication and interpersonal skills are important too.
