Manufacturing Production Technicians

Advancement Prospects

Manufacturing production technicians who complete their apprenticeship training usually become journeymen. Opportunities for advancement beyond this rank may be limited, but production technicians who hone their knowledge of complicated machinery and equipment can advance into higher paying positions. Highly skilled production technicians become supervisors and managers, responsible for hiring and overseeing the work of production technicians. Skilled production technicians with additional training may move into other specialized manufacturing fields, such as numerical control tool programming, precision metalworking, packaging machinery technicians, and robotics technicians. They may also become teachers and speakers at industry-related conferences and educational programs.
