General Maintenance Mechanics
Many employers prefer to hire helpers or mechanics who are high school graduates, but a diploma is not always required. High school courses that will prepare you for this occupation include mechanical drawing, metal shop, electrical shop, woodworking, blueprint reading, general science, computer science, and applied mathematics. Since computerized systems are increasingly being used to monitor building operations, it's a good idea to also take computer science courses.
