Vocational
Computer/Telecomm

The computer and telecommunication industries provide users with telephone, television and Internet services. Workers in this industry repair, install and maintain such systems, or act as telephone operators or are involved in the planning and administration of such telecommunication services.

For entry-level positions in computer and telecommunications and repair, employees are required to have some training, which can be obtained through vocational schools, during military training or as on-the-job training. This can include obtaining skills about electronics, line installation, computer program and software knowledge, and voice telephone technology knowledge.

Because telecommunications as an industry is changing with technology, it is important for employees to continue training and education in order to stay competitive in the marketplace.

The average computer/telecomm repair worker will install and maintain telephone and communication equipment, including cable, wireless, and satellite equipment. This can include installing Internet service, satellite dishes, or television equipment. The majority of work is done within a customer's home or business, and workers are often required to communicate to customers how the equipment or programs work.
