More about this skill
Heavy vehicle maintenance technicians must be able to work with internal combustion engines and components. This entails a knowledge of a variety of specific tools such as heavy equipment and power tools to diagnose problems, make adjustments, and repair faults.
Work often has to be done at speed, while observing strict safety standards if vital production time is not to be lost. The technician often works alone and is the link between the employer, the customer, and the manufacturer and can involve a degree of seniority at the highest level of performance.
