A senior electronics technician oversees a team of electronics technicians that perform diagnoses and repairs on electronic devices. They apply their knowledge of electronic operations to build, test, repair, and modify electronic components. They also read and interpret manuals, carry out installation of new equipment, and carry out routine service inspections.
A senior electronics technician typically works in offices, telecommunication companies, factories, government agencies, electrical engineering firms, or electronics shops. In order to succeed in their role, they must have strong mechanical skills, attention to detail, hand-eye coordination, communication skills, analytical skills, leadership skills, problem-solving skills, and people management skills.
Senior electronics technicians may either work in an office setting or in a factory. They work 40 hours a week.
