What is a maintenance technician? As employment in manufacturing has gradually eroded, skilled technical workers—varyingly called trade workers or specialized craft workers have received little attention among social scientists, but many of these occupations remain a viable pathway to the middle class for millions of Americans and play a critical role since maintenance techs maintain the nation’s economic productivity using skilled technicians processes. Thus, a more precise understanding of these occupations and their training requirements lead to better policy reforms that enhance individual well-being and national economic vitality. Using wages to gauge middle-skilled occupations can be misleading because workers in the middle of the wage distribution may be relatively unskilled but compensated well because of union contracts or other characteristics of the industries in which they commonly work. Likewise, some low-wage occupations may be relatively skilled but experiencing negative wage trends as a result of trade, immigration, or technological change. Using educational requirements also runs into difficulty because there is tremendous variation in the technical skills of people who have the same level of education.

Skilled technical workers are found in a diverse array of occupations. Indeed, of the 22 major occupational categories – only five have zero occupations that meet the criteria. Most skilled technical workers are in “blue collar” occupations: installation, maintenance, and repair; construction; production; protective services; and transportation and material moving. Yet, many are in traditionally professional occupational families. The second largest group—representing 3.3 million jobs—is health care practitioner and technical occupations, and the fifth largest group—representing 0.82 million workers—is computer and mathematical occupations. Architectural and engineering occupations comprise another 0.65 million.

Skilled technical occupations disproportionately employ workers with sub-bachelor’s level higher educational credentials. Almost one-quarter of skilled technical occupations report a postsecondary certificate as their highest level of education, compared with only 6% of all other workers. This makes a certificate the most common level of education besides a high school diploma for skilled technical workers. Another 15% of skilled technical workers have earned an associate’s degree, compared with 6% of all other workers. Relative to the rest of the US workforce, skilled technical workers are much more likely to have a postsecondary education beyond a high school diploma, but less likely to have earned a bachelor’s or higher degree.

CMMS Technology

Using CMMS Technology to Bridge Workforce Gaps

One of the most apparent outcomes of the pandemic is the change in the workforce. While some have become accustomed to taking advantage of income subsidy options and are now reluctant to return to work, many others have determined full-time onsite employment is not the best fit for their lifestyle. Either way, the result is a shortage of qualified workers.

Now layer in the fact that many of the most experienced workers are retiring with 50% of facilities personnel to retire in the next 10 years. The amount of historic knowledge in those who are exiting the workforce in conjunction with the drop in investing in trades has led to an increase in contract work coupled with a drop in option for specialty skills.

Preventative Maintenance

Be Preventative – Not Reactive

Preventative. A word which should stand on its own strength with a definition of “used to stop something bad from happening.”. Now combine that with the word maintenance and the result is one of the most important outcomes of using Maxpanda CMMS – preventative maintenance. In fact maintenance management software can reduce downtime so you’re pm’s last longer.

One of our largest customers is required to provide records to maintain government funding. That doesn’t seem like it would be that difficult until you take into account the sheer amount of paperwork required for over 1200 buildings. Remember to consider not only the time to create the work orders, implement them, send them, update them and then the administration that is required to file and maintain them. Now take that number and multiply it by approximately 3500. How easy would it be for just one to fall through the cracks without a maintenance management software? Focus on the word cracks, which will become important shortly.
