									                   Technician – Tips Becoming Computer Technician


If you have a natural affinity for computers, and you enjoy working with machines, then one of the most
rewarding and enjoyable jobs that you might want to look at is that of becoming a computer technician.

Among the benefits of becoming a computer technician is that it is a very varied and interesting
profession, in which you can choose from a number of different ways to progress, and also choose
whether you would like to be self-employed and running your own business, or you can work for an
employer and follow a more structured employment path.

One of the routes into the work of a computer technician in recent years has been to study a course in
computer building or repair that will give you a good foundation of knowledge about how computers
are constructed, and how the various parts within the computer work together and complement each
other.

Another option if you have already been tinkering and upgrading your own computers for some time is
to look for a local computer technician who should be fairly experienced, and is willing to take on an
apprentice so that you can get plenty of practical experience, and then apply this experience under their
supervision as you develop your computer knowledge.

If you prefer to work in an environment where there is a more structured progression and development
in your role as a computer technician, then you may want to consider looking at corporations which
have large offices in your area, as these will often have a number of IT staff already working there.
Among the benefits of following this career path is that the company will often sponsor you or at least
give you some support in earning more qualifications and accreditations to help you develop.

Once you have begun to be established as a computer technician, then it is valuable for you to think
about getting more qualifications or accreditations, which will allow you to increase the breadth of your
knowledge and experience, which will naturally assist you in getting more lucrative opportunities, and
moving forwards in your career as a computer technician. These can be either educationally based, or
be accreditations provided by manufacturers.

Whichever route you choose, becoming a computer technician can be both an interesting and lucrative
profession.
