I work in Industrial maintenance, is trying to progress a good idea?
I have a two year degree in elctrical and mechanical maintenance. I like my current job a lot, but I'm concerned that over the next few years jobs in this field will become fewer and fewer with the current loss rate of manufacturing jobs . I am very diversified in my skills; mechanics, pnuematics, hydraulics,electrical, machining, PLC's and CNC's. . Is this career going to be worth investing further training in the years to come? Would specialized certifications, such as ISA"s CIMM, IFPS's CFPPM, or electronics training be beneficial or should I just start training in another field? Because I work a rotating shift engineering and engineering technology, although the most likely choices, are out of the question. I have an interest in a computer career, but would this too be a dead end field in the years to come? Thanks in advance for your USEFUL advise and comments.
