How do you become a Mobile Heavy Equipment Mechanic?

High School Endorsement: Business & Industry

In addition to a high school diploma or a GED, employers prefer to hire mechanics with postsecondary training at either vocational/technical schools or community colleges. Las escuelas secundarias también pueden ofrecer programas relacionados aunque su alcance varía. Los programas de escuelas secundarias son una buena posibilidad porque ofrecen una introducción a las habilidades de la profesión. Las personas que completen la capacitación relacionada en escuela secundaria están mejor capacitadas para completar con éxito una preparación más intensiva en escuelas vocacionales e institutos de enseñanza superior.

Once hired the position generally requires more than 12 months of on-the-job training for workers to develop the skills needed for average job performance.

En el pasado, los candidatos ingresaban a este campo contratados para realizar mantenimiento en general y luego aprendían las habilidades técnicas necesarias durante varios años. A medida que las maquinarias se vuelven más y más complejas, es cada vez más difícil ingresar a este campo sin capacitación formal. 

Licensure & Certification

Though no certifications are required, they can indicate higher levels of specialization and can demand a higher pay in the future. In Texas, certifications are offered by the International Fluid Power Society, Society of Tribologists and Lubrication Engineers, como así también en la Association of Equipment Management Professionals.
