What does an Installer do?

Installers are service professionals who affix and position equipment in a designated location and complete the set-up process so the equipment is ready for operation or can serve its purpose. Their primary objective is to ensure the equipment is installed in a safe manner that doesn’t present any hazards while also supporting functionality to allow for the best possible performance. They review and explain operation and maintenance information to the user or customer. They may also provide ongoing support, maintenance, and repairs.

Installers have a minimum of a high school diploma and may have completed a trade school program or training course. Hands-on experience installing and adjusting the particular equipment involved is preferred. These roles are often physically demanding and may involve working in strenuous conditions.
