Telecommunications Technicians install and maintain fibre optic cables and other telecommunications equipment at businesses, government organisations, and private residences. They mainly work outdoors laying cables and connecting appliances.
As a Communication Technician you’ll be reading maps and schematic diagrams to ensure the correct positioning of cables and equipment as well as using instruments and hand tools to test and repair faulty connections. A typical work day might involve climbing ladders, driving to a remote location, and working from a roof-top, ceiling, or telecommunications tower.
