What is Maintenance Technology?

Maintenance Technology involves keeping residential and commercial buildings and manufacturing facilities, as well as their related infrastructures, in working order. This includes cleaning and repair, as well as new installation, of a variety of structural and systems components. Maintenance Technicians often acquire their specialized skills and certification through apprenticeships, which combine on-the-job training with theoretical and practical classroom and lab instruction.
