What do Certified Production Technicians do?

Production Technicians are responsible for assembling and testing manufactured goods. They ensure that a quality product is delivered quickly and according to safety, environmental, and health procedures and regulations. These individuals set up, start up, operate, and shut down manufacturing equipment. They ensure products are working exactly as intended, and are free of defects or others issues. Production Technicians usually work as part of a larger team, frequently interacting with manufacturing and Quality Assurance personnel.
