Industries & Professions /
Employment opportunities for most instrumentation technicians will grow about as fast as the average through 2018. Employment growth for engineering technicians is expected to be slower than average, and biomedical equipment repairers will experience much faster than average employment growth in the coming years, according to the U.S. Department of Labor. Opportunities will be best for graduates of postsecondary technical training programs. As technology becomes more sophisticated, employers will continue to look for technicians who are skilled in new technology and require a minimum of additional job training.
