Default Sim Tech

OK. I have searched high and low for this, hopefully someone can help.
I am looking at possibly getting into the simulator technician industry.
Anyone have any ideas?
Seems there is always a posting for them at FSI, CAE,...
???
Are there specific schools for it? Where do I start?
Thanks.

I would be alot of them are internal hires... or you just apply. Most of these types probably have some sort of background in computers, electronics, etc.

Herc is right. You're basically the Maytag man 90% of the time. Then all of a sudden, three instructors from three different sims are calling at once for seperate problems!All the guys at my sim facility seem to like it.

Something I found out last year when I was going thru E170 initial at FSI STL was that each sim has to have a "preflight" done by a tech each morning to certify that it is up to FAA standards...... I found that quite interesting.

Yep. From having two flashlights up front a POM/AFM, and the fire extinguishers, it's gotta be just like the plane. Doesn't have to "feel" like the plane, but nonetheless.
