Geothermal Technicians

Experience, Skills, and Personality Traits

Employers prefer to hire geothermal technicians who have apprenticeship experience and several months to one year of prior work experience. The job requires a number of skills and abilities, including knowledge of machines and tools, production processes and raw materials, computers and electronics, as well as strong communication skills. Technicians must be detail oriented, able to identify problems and come up with answers that make sense. Near vision is essential for seeing the details within a few feet, particularly when observing machine gauges and controls. Geothermal technicians work indoors and outdoors in all conditions. They are exposed to hazards and contaminants in their jobs, which is why they wear protective equipment such as helmets, safety glasses, gloves, hearing protection, and/or life jackets when needed. People who thrive in this field are dependable, have integrity, are cooperative and able to work independently as well as part of a team, and have initiative.
