Previous experience as a general boatyard worker will be useful for aspiring marine services technicians. Most technicians work outdoors some of the time, and they are often required to test-drive the vessels they work on. This is considered an added benefit by many workers.

Boat owners are often very proud of and attached to their vessels, so workers need to have both respect and authority when communicating with customers.
