Use These 3 Tips to Find a Low Voltage Technician Job

Low voltage technicians are the individuals who install low-voltage systems and rout cables in both commercial and residential settings.

Low voltage technicians are the individuals who install low-voltage systems and rout cables in both commercial and residential settings. They often work with TV and security alarm wiring. Since low-voltage wiring is required in everything from communications to entertainment systems, technicians are kept busy with new installations and repair work.

After a technician has diagnosed any issues and determined that a new installation is needed, they will help the client to decide on a system that will fit their needs and stay within their budget. Low voltage technicians set up the various controls that a client will be using, and they then go through the wiring and cables to ensure that everything is installed properly and is up to code.

Unlike many skilled professions, low voltage technicians do not require a college degree. However, a high school diploma and a state license or certification will likely be needed, although the process will be different from state to state. But while regulation and accreditation may vary by state, the professional guidelines, tools, and techniques for low voltage technicians are standard according to the National Electrical Code (NEC).

Businesses and homes are increasingly becoming integrated, and there is a growing need for low voltage technicians. If this fast-growing career is something that fits your talents and skills, here are a few suggestions for getting hired:

1. Make sure you list your skills, experience, and accomplishments on your resume

Here are some of the qualifications you might need:

  • Experience running or bending conduit, with digital multi-meters, and testing cable
  • Troubleshooting networking issues
  • Rack and stack work, closet work, putting together server racks, patch panels
  • Fiber experience including anaerobic terminations, SC and LC connectors, and splicing
  • Ability to read and understand schematic and line diagrams
  • Working knowledge of audio, video, control, and communications systems
  • Strong background in electronics and low voltage integration

Many companies will require you to have basic telecom tools that include punch downs, snips, wire strippers, cordless drill, and personal protective equipment (PPE).

2. You must be familiar with BICSI, EIA, TIA, or NEC standards

Building Industry Consulting Service International (BICSI) offers standards support for cabling installation, conduits, and documentation, among other information.

The Electronic Industries Alliance (EIA) was a trade association for electronics manufacturers that developed standards that ensured the equipment of different manufacturers was compatible and interchangeable.

The Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA) developed a set of standards for telecommunications products and services.

National Electrical Code (NEC) is a set of standards for the safe installation of electric wiring in the United States. The NEC is updated once every three years.

3. Talk to a staffing agency that specializes in hiring low voltage technicians

The shortest path to a job as a low voltage technician is with the help of a professional staffing firm. And if you partner with an agency that focuses on placing low voltage and electrical talent, your chances of being hired increase exponentially.
