Similarly to an electrical installer, an electronics installer works with electronic equipment and is primarily tasked with its installation and configuration. The job of an electronics installer can be somewhat more difficult than that of an electrical installer though, due to the complexity in configuring some of the more advanced systems and pieces of equipment. An team of electronics installers may be hired to set up a large array of computers, or even a mainframe, working together with computer and software engineers in most cases.
To become an electronics installer, one must demonstrate exceptional skills and knowledge in the field of electronics, especially working with equipment with no prior configuration. In many cases, electronics installers are tasked with working on recently released devices and may be required to stay up-to-date with the various new advancements in the field of electronics. A higher degree of education is rarely a strict requirement, though it could be required too, in some cases of high-ranking companies with stricter requirements towards their candidates.
Working as an electronics installer can be a medium to high-paying job, depending on the particular place of employment. Annual salaries can range between $31,000 – $76,000, with the higher end of the spectrum being populated primarily by experts working in the field of security. In general, this is the best-paying sector of the electronics industry, and electronics installers working for security companies can earn some very high salaries.
