TN FAME - Jackson Chapter
The Advanced Maintenance Technician (AMT) Co-op provides a new approach to attaining an Associate of Applied Science (AAS) in Engineering Systems Technology with a concentration in Multi-Skilled Maintenance Technician.
DIVE INTO A CHALLENGING ADVANCED MANUFACTURING CAREER
The Multi-Skilled Maintenance Technician is a highly trained individual with special skillsets that work in manufacturing environments. Due to their specialized training and skills, they command much higher salaries than typical manufacturing positions. A multi-skilled maintenance technician has a broad foundation of theoretical and practical knowledge in the areas of electrical and electronic circuits, robotics, instrumentation, programmable logic controllers, motor controls and hydraulics/pneumatics equipment.
Trained Multi-Skilled Technicians can expect to earn more than $37,000 per year starting salary and the earning potential can rapidly increase to $50,000 or more. This is very significant considering that the median household income in Tennessee is only $41,000.
