About the Job

    Your role as an Electronics Technician (ET) sailor requires you to be adept at operating, monitoring and maintaining equipment in a wide and diverse range of platforms, both on ship and on shore. The main aspects of this role can be broken down to two main areas: operating equipment, and monitoring performance. And if you happen to identify potential for any operational fault, it’s then up to you to take corrective action if required. There’s a range of different maintenance involved in the role; like routine planned maintenance (eg: hourly, weekly, monthly, annual etc), attending to breakdown maintenance, and assisting contractors in higher level maintenance.

    Note: Electronics Technician sailors do not maintain electrical services. Qualified electricians or people interested in working with electrical power generation or high voltage systems are more suited to employment as Marine Technicians.

    There’s a wide range of different machinery and associated systems throughout the ship that you’ll be responsible for the operation and maintenance of:

    • RADAR systems and Displays
    • Navigation Aids (gyro-compasses, Inertial Navigation systems)
    • Weapons systems (Guns, Missile systems)
    • Fire Control Systems
    • Satellite equipment (GPS, SATCOM)
    • Communications systems (HF, VHF, UHF)
    • Electronic Warfare systems
    • Underwater systems (SONAR, Echo Sounders, Torpedo Countermeasures)

    As part of your Electronics Technician training, you’ll be given the opportunity to obtain and develop a wide range of skills and qualifications. Once you reach a certain level of competence through on-the-job experience and completion of competency elements, you’ll be ready to undertake maintenance activities under limited supervision.
