You will also learn how to maintain and repair various types of wireless LANs, cellular and point-to-point microwave systems, as well as troubleshoot and maintain fibre-optic transmission systems (FOTS), cable and satellite television systems and public / private / virtual networking equipment systems.

Communication technicians have traditionally been employed by large telecommunications and cable companies, as well as smaller companies that install, maintain, sell or lease telecommunications equipment. These smaller companies may subcontract to the larger telecommunications companies or install private communications systems.
