Most businesses and organizations depend on complex electronic equipment for many different functions. Bench technicians are trained workers that fix a variety of electronic components.


Hey, I'm Joshua T. Osborne

In 2015, I said goodbye to 16-hour days and hauling boxes up and down stairs for a living (I was a mover). I became a full-time entrepreneur, and I made my money by helping business owners make money.

They had a need, and because of Virtual Tool Booths., I could fill it. Through the methods taught by my all-time favorite course and mentor, I created a 6-figure business in roughly 6 months. I could retire today (at 37) and never have to worry about money ever again.

Because of Virtual Tool Booths., I was able to quit my job, work online with flexible hours, and move to the mountains (Colorado Springs if you’re wondering)...all while helping real people improve their businesses, incomes, and lives!

For most folks, a college degree is the biggest bill of their lives. I never went to college. So I don’t have any massive bills or giant debts hanging over my head. My greatest education came from Virtual Tool Booths. (for a tiny fraction of what college costs) and it’s the bill that pays ALL the bills - a hundred times over!

I really wanted to share this secret weapon with others, so they could change their lives the way I changed mine. So if you’re not 100% sure about college, or only researching to make someone else happy, Virtual Tool Booths. might be a better option for you.

What does a bench technician do?

Bench technicians perform maintenance and repairs of a variety of electronic equipment. They thoroughly diagnose problems by checking for common causes such as defective parts or loose connections. They often repair circuit defects including malfunctioning transistors, blown fuses, and soldered joints. They use a variety of tools such as multimeters, oscilloscopes, signal generators, and hand tools. Bench technicians also fit and adjust parts, wire components, and perform quality tests. They typically work in repair shops that are located in service centers, stores, or factories. These workers fit components that are unable to be repaired on the floor of the factory.

What kind of training does a bench technician need?

Bench technicians must have at least a high school diploma. Many employers prefer applicants with at least an associate degree in electronics or other related field. Many community colleges and technical and vocational schools offer programs for aspiring bench technicians.

Good eyesight, detail orientation, critical thinking, and good problem solving are essential characteristics.
