Mechanics typically work in shops, but are often called to outside locations to diagnose and fix equipment. With the increase in complexity of equipment, it is becoming more and more difficult for an individual to walk onto a job. NIT has developed Mechanic Programs to meet the needs of students and employers. As with most mechanic positions, accidents can be avoided with proper observation and by following operating procedures and safety practices.
Mechanics often get their hands dirty working for equipment manufacturers and companies within the construction, mining, oil and gas, transportation, agriculture, ATV, and marine industries. Mechanics may work in remote locations and may be asked to work irregular hours.
