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.
