Being the frontliners in offices, administrative assistants are nonetheless in demand. As a matter of fact, there are over four million people holding this particular career post in the United States back in 2006. The trend is expected to rise by approximately 9% in the next decade according to US Bureau of Labour Statistics. It is not surprising though as many sections are being integrated in the organizational framework not to mention the emergence of new corporate entities. In particular, it comes in many different jobs such as accounting assistant, personal assistant, project assistant, production assistant, clerk, and receptionist.

An administrative assistant handles an array of functions hence multi-tasking happens to be the key virtue. More often than not, it includes business correspondence, file management, making and answering calls, and other clerical functions. Budgeting, bookkeeping, and scheduling comprise another set of relevant competencies. To make the discharge of duties even more efficient, there are office devices and facilities that aid in the performance of daily work such as computer, facsimile machine, photocopier, telephone, etc. In the same way, knowledge and skills of operating these machines are imperative to optimization of these resources.

Consequently, the administrative assistant or secretarial profession started in the Renaissance period. The term secretary even originated from a Latin word “secernere” meaning “to set apart” which further connotes to something private. In turn, someone who manages confidential affairs for powerful people such as King or Pope in the old times is given the designation secretarius. In the 20th century, it has been regarded as a professional career upon the establishment of academic courses such as typing, stenography, MS applications, etc. Also, relevant organizations have been founded such as National Secretaries Associations and International Association of Administrative Professionals. Not so long after the commencement of these organizational bodies, the Certified Professional Secretaries Examination has been introduced to provide standardized testing to office workers.

The growing demand for professional office assistants compelled the academe to provide relevant academic curricula. More often than not, these are in form of two-year training programs for accounting office assistant, administrative medical assistant, executive office assistant, legal administrative assistant, and office technology professional. Further specializations consist of event planning, travel counselling, and accounting. There are also online associate degree programs accessible such as Associate of Applied Science in Office Administration and Associate of Applied Science in Office Management. Upon conferment of Associate’s diploma, the four-part professional exam may be taken to achieve Certified Administrative Professional designation. Although not compulsory, such recognition can provide competitive advantage to applicants.

An array of employment opportunities awaits administrative assistant professionals. Numerous multinational companies from many different industries comprise an attractive career niche such as accounting and auditing, business and finance, and health and medicine. Governments can also provide secretarial posts for various offices under its comprehensive organizational structure. Academic institutions are also looking for competent professionals eligible for the teaching profession not to mention their administrative personnel demands. Moreover, small offices within the locality such as medical clinic, law firm, and manpower agencies can tender job placements, too. General responsibilities are clerical and administrative in nature although discretionary functions are awarded to skilled executive assistants.

In choosing a means of transportation for long distance travel, one would typically go for airplane than ship – if the budget allows for it. For one, although air travel is more expensive, travel period is definitely shorter; and travel period is often a bigger consideration than cost. Likewise, statistics suggests that there are far less air tragedies than sea tragedies. In sea tragedy, however, the likelihood of survival is higher than in air tragedy. It is said that when an airplane encounters an unfixable trouble in mid-air, the possibility of having at least one alive is almost non-existent at all. Since airplane is considered as one of the common carriers, security and safety are non-negotiable.

It is for such considerations that the aircraft industry may be one of those that employ the strictest maintenance standards. To be qualified as Aircraft Maintenance Technician/Engineer, one has to acquire certain certification from authorized certifying body. In the United States, for instance, it is the Federal Aviation Administration that creates the rules for certification, issues certificate for employment, and approves the Aircraft Maintenance curriculum of schools offering this program. Certification is given to those who have passed all written examinations and demonstrated proficiency in different sets of practical examinations. Aircraft Maintenance is a highly technical vocation that is dominated by men.

Aircraft maintenance checks have to be done regularly on all aircrafts following the prescribed amount of time/usage. There are categories of checks, depending on the extent of inspection to be done: (1) A Check is performed monthly or every 500 fight hours and is usually done in an airport gate. The check can be finished overnight; (2) B Check is done quarterly and is usually done in airport gate. The check takes overnight to finish; (3) C Check is done once a year or at most every 1.5 years. This check cannot be done in an airport gate due to larger space requirement; hence, the aircraft is endorsed in maintenance base for long checking. Aircraft endorsed for this check is put out-of-service for days until the check gets completed; (4) D Check is the heaviest, most stringent aircraft check and is done every 4 to 5 years. This is done in maintenance base for longer time than any other checks.

Aircraft Maintenance usually takes about 18 to 24 months of schooling, and this includes hands-on trainings. This is commonly offered in aviation schools. Military schools also cover aircraft maintenance as part of their air force training; and military-trained professionals may use this experience in applying for certification for civilian aircraft mechanic/engineering work. The program covers fundamental knowledge, such as mathematical calculation; Physics; understanding the technical/operational manuals; aviation laws and procedures; technical drawings; ground operations and design of aircrafts; aircraft quality control; hydraulics; and fuel, electrical, and mechanical systems.

Aircraft Maintenance Technician/Engineer is responsible for inspecting or supervising maintenance procedures, conducting preventive maintenance procedures, and repairing or altering defective aircraft and aircraft systems. They get to recommend replacing certain parts of the aircraft if found defective. They can even make a call to phase out or scrap aircrafts that are found unsuited for further utilization. Relying in the hands of these professionals is the safety of thousands of flight passengers everyday.

Study Applied Mechanics

DenmarkIndiaRussiaSpainSwedenThe United StatesUkraineZimbabwe

Applied Mechanics is a field of study that looks into the response and potential response of bodies, which could be in solid or fluid form, or systems of bodies to external forces. Currently, principles of Applied Mechanics are being used in the formulation of new theories, discovery and interpretation of natural events or phenomena related to mechanics and development of experimental and computational tools. Mostly, Applied Mechanics will be dealing with Statics, the study of non-moving bodies under known loads (stress); Dynamics, the study of how different forces affect moving bodies; Strength of Materials, the study of different materials deform under different types of loads or stress; Deformation Mechanics, the study of deformations; Fluid Mechanics, the study of how fluid respond to forces and; Continuum Mechanics, which believes that all matter are constantly moving.

Although, not a popular course as those courses with the word “engineering” attached to it, Applied Mechanics however is very much connected to these popular engineering courses as they also make use of Applied Mechanics principles. Currently, Applied Mechanics are very much applied by civil engineers in the construction of high-rise buildings which should withstand the weather elements and at the same time can carry the traffic of people going in and out the building, aero spatial engineers who makes vehicles to be used in space which could disintegrate when exposed to zero gravity and any field that may find the integrity of materials significant.

Opportunity-wise, not all degree holders of Applied Mechanics will be rocket scientists and so the next opportunity lies in construction. Building a skyscraper like the one now being built in Dubai, touted to be the tallest man-made structure on Earth when finished will have signatures of applied mechanicians all over it. A tall building definitely is beyond the skills of ordinary civil engineers and requires much higher sets of skills to give it a chance of not crumbling down when strong winds batters it down. A building that will kiss the heavens for sure needs to be thoroughly thought out up to the minute details like screws and bolts.

Currently, proponents of Applied Mechanics are researching heavily into the vibrations of structures and machineries and their responses when exposed to heavy seismic activities. Imagine the amount of billions in dollars to be saved if somebody can come up with a concrete material that can withstand an 8.0 magnitude in the Richter scale. Those residential and commercial areas located on fault lines need not rebuild again and again when the scale registers a 6.0 or a 7.0. If ever there is one calamity that causes loss of life by the hundreds and damages properties in a matter of seconds, it is earthquakes. Fault lines would always be in constant shifting and during those tectonic shifts, structures like houses and buildings would have no choice but to buckle up even though they were designed by the finest architects as the materials used cannot simply stand such stress. So, a material like let’s say, steel beams and concrete materials that can withstand intense shakeouts, can be possibly thought out by an applied mechanician.

Applied Mechanics though is much unheard of as a field of study, had been very much instrumental in the advancement of inventions such as cars, railroads, petroleum refineries, airplanes, composite materials, computers and implants (medical) among other things. To those who wants to make super imposing structures like a building or dam or giant bridges, then this is the course to take.

Baking and Pastry is one of the most popular technical courses today which is of course thanks to man’s love for bread and sweets. Tracing back the history of baking and pastry making, will take us to the time even before the Egyptians. The first evidence of baking was when men tried mixing wild grass grain with almost everything, soaking it in water, mashing it into some kind of paste, and putting it on a flat rock which was placed on hot embers. When the Egyptians came, bread was becoming more like the bread we know today. On the other hand, the Romans were technically the first pastry cooks when they tried mixing sweet things like honey to plain bread. The Roman pastry cooks were highly respected, especially those who could invent new pastries that were unseen before. With the expansion of their kingdom, Roman pastry cooking spread all over the world and even to the eastern parts of Asia. Baking and pastry making became an art when open-air cafés were developed and popularized in Paris.

Baking and Pastry, Part of the Culinary Arts

Study Baking at the Art Institute in Fort Lauderdale, Source.Baking and pastry making take more than just cooking a block of bread and covering it with an ample amount of icing. As it is considered an art, students interested in taking this course are expected to learn making a wide range of bread—from simple and traditional, to more elegant desserts fit as showpieces—using sugar, syrups, icings, chocolate, and even fruits.

Many suggest, and even advise students to first take Culinary Arts as a stepping stone before moving on to Baking and Pastry Arts. Students who take Culinary Arts will learn how to masterfully handle knifes and even how to create artistic food presentation. Students will also learn culinary theories such as how to create menus and designing a kitchen that can produce it, both of which are important foundation should they choose to become professional pastry cooks. Soft skills like management, leadership and communication skills, budgeting, and integrating computer applications in the food service are also important should students decide to take this course.

The Baking and Pastry Curriculum

Students who did take Culinary Arts would have a basic knowledge on baking which will be developed and mastered when they move on to Pastry Arts. An example of a curriculum on Baking and Pastry include subjects in: basic and artisanal breads; pies, tarts, pastries; cookies, petit four, cakes; advanced cake decorating and wedding cakes; custards and mousse; plated desserts; chocolate and candies; ice cream and sorbet; pastillage, chocolate, and sugar showpieces. Most, if not all, curriculums also include an externship which will allow students to apply their knowledge in the field. Not only will this externship be helpful in reiterating the knowledge students will get while in school, this will also be helpful in determining whether a student is indeed ready for the pastry industry.

After completing the course, students will be able to prepare yeast raised products (breads, laminated dough); prepare a wide of variety of cakes; prepare egg and dairy based products; and, more importantly, utilize concept of budgeting, cost control, quality standards, and profit and staffing cost.

Study Bookkeeping

Bookkeeping is basically the recording of financial transactions, such as income, sales, purchases, and payments, of an individual or an organization to monitor the business performance. As it is associated with Accounting, one must not confuse it from the latter. Accounting, on the other hand, is basically making a report out of the recorded financial transactions made by the bookkeeper as well as files and forms from the government agencies. At that, a bookkeeper and an accountant work together to accomplish financial reports for an individual or an organization. However, accountants can also do the bookkeeping themselves as they have the knowledge and skills to do so. Bookkeeping can be done manually or using online bookkeeping programs through the use of the computer. For you to be able to understand bookkeeping, you must familiarize yourself with bookkeeping jargon like their shorthand DR and CR for Debit and Credit, respectively.

In the process of bookkeeping, there are 2 common bookkeeping systems used: the Single-entry Bookkeeping system and the Double-entry Bookkeeping system. In the Single-entry Bookkeeping system, only the income and expenses accounts are recorded and are placed mainly in an expense and revenue journal. It is somehow alike to a financial statement where transactions are only recorded once. This type of bookkeeping system is most often used in small business organizations. On the other hand, the Double-entry Bookkeeping system involves recording each financial transaction twice, with at least two financial records, using debits and credits to pin-point any errors in the recording of transactions. This is usually used by bigger business organizations that have lots of financial transactions ongoing every day.

In light of the fact that today’s technology is at its best and is continuing to innovate, bookkeeping can now be done with the help of computers. Some bookkeepers, especially those employed in large organizations make use of computerized bookkeeping or online bookkeeping for them to experience less difficulty in recording all the company’s financial transactions. Big companies like banks make use of the online bookkeeping system for easier recording of financial transactions from all of its branches throughout the city, or even the country.

Bookkeeping involves recording day-to-day financial transactions of an individual or an organization. Bookkeepers record these transactions in what they call the “daybook”, which consists of the individual or organization’s sales, purchases, payments, and receipts. They also ensure that all financial transactions for the day are all recorded correctly in the respective daybook so as to avoid confusion. Aside from the daybook, bookkeepers also maintain the customer ledger, supplier ledger, and the general ledger. At the end of the day, the bookkeepers bring the books to the Trial Balance stage and give them to the accountant. The accountant now makes the income statement and balance sheet with the help of the trial balance and ledgers which were prepared by the bookkeeper.

For students who majored in Bookkeeping, a career as a bookkeeper is the main job one can get. Bookkeepers may be employed as Accounting Clerks, Accounting Technicians, or Human Resources Assistants who are in-charge of the company’s payroll.

Study Carpentry

The career perhaps can be considered as one of the oldest professions in the world, apart from the other one that we all know. Most usually scoff at such a menial profession but, he who casts the first stone, right? But impervious to everyone the knowledge that there are some people who have taken Carpentry to the level of art form. But before one becomes the next Picasso of craftsmanship, one needs to learn first.

Government vocational schools usually offer the course. The study usually spans 2 years involving basic craftsmanship regarding woodworks. Specifically the utilization of lumber, anchor, bolts, screws, hinges and a large variety of power tools for heavy duty outfitting. This basic course would be the probable step into becoming a professional carpenter.

On some occasions specific national military institutions offer the basic course for those who want to enlist. The military program commonly consists of teaching would-be engineers in constructing military field installations such as triage centers, field hospitals, headquarters and sometimes even small scale bridges. The skills learned in the army as a field engineered can be considered tantamount to those who have graduated from a 2 year vocational course. Some say even better due to the fact of the required military training that may offer better working opportunities and one can always stay on the service as a career field engineer for the army.

However some may not like the prospect of joining the military. Thankfully there are private construction firms who offer apprenticeship type of programs for those who want to learn. These programs are usually offered to high school students as a part time course where they can also earn while on the program. The program is commonly placed in heavy construction settings where the apprentice is tasked to help out the experienced carpenters and laborers. These firms usually offer a wide range of programs regarding construction ranging from masonry, carpentry and heavy machinery operation. This is usually a good setting for anyone to learn Carpentry since one is basically thrown in a construction site and rub shoulders with more experienced workers.

There are also sites that offer training via video streams where one can watch instructional videos ranging from basic home repairs to roof construction. However most carpenters do not recommend this type of teaching process because there some tools that maybe considered as lethal in the hands of a novice. Especially with some power tools such as the nail gun and the electric woodcutter which caused notable cases of lacerated fingers and punctured palms.

If one decides to stay on the job as a professional carpenter one would consider in becoming a finishing carpenter which some consider as the highest level that a carpenter may achieve in his or her career. The level still revolves around wood working. Only this time the pieces created have intricate details for aesthetic purposes. One of the basic pieces that a master carpenter can produce would be the circular table which can be seen almost anywhere. Now, most people think that there is nothing especial about how a round table is made. But if one thinks about it, how exactly does one create a circular table? A typical square table is apparently easy since the nature commonly lies in simply nailing the legs to the bottom surface. Then again most circled tables usually just stand in one leg, now can a typical person do that?

Study Cosmetology

Choose where you would like to study Cosmetology:

ArgentinaAustraliaBrazilCanadaGreeceIndiaSpainSri LankaThe United KingdomThe United States

Cosmetology is the art of beautifying, through cosmetic means, the hair, face, skin, and nails. Cosmetology courses are being offered in vocational and technical schools. Students are being taught to properly operate tools and equipment in beauty salons and to apply different beauty techniques. There are trainings and workshops to keep cosmetologists up to beat in latest about the field. This makes them and their business live up the steep competition in this industry. Equipping oneself with necessary knowledge and training is next to passion in doing this vocation. In the United States, the average number of hours for full cosmetology program ranges from 1400 to 1600.

One must acquire necessary license before he/she will be able to render cosmetic services. Licensing requirements depend on area of specialization and differ from location to location. For one to acquire license in Cosmetology, it is important to successfully complete the training programs and recommended number of hours of immersion in beauty salons for the on-the-job training. Passing the qualifying exam is a must, as well. Technical skills play a significant part in practicing this vocation. For hair stylists, for instance, it is not enough to straighten a customer’s hair upon her request. The stylist should check for the time hair straightening was last made to the customer to ensure she will not go against the prescribed frequency of treatment – which could potentially damage the hair. The hair stylist is also responsible for possible allergic reaction of the customer to hair treatment. Just like any licensed vocation or profession, any malpractice would warrant revocation of license, which would, in turn, warrant inability to legally practice the field.

Cosmetologists need to have high level of social and interpersonal skills to work with and around people they may or may not know. It is their responsibility to make people who come to beauty salons feel comfortable and want to come back again and again – the ability to keep customers coming is what keeps the business or the career alive. What is exciting about this vocation is that the end objective is to make the customer as beautiful as possible – and this is why cosmetologists are also termed as ‘beauticians.’ When customers get satisfied with how the cosmetologist turned their look from point A to point Z, a tip is usually given on top of service charge.

Customers of Cosmetology services come from different walks of life. They may be middle-class individuals who regularly visit salons for manicure, pedicure, hair treatment sessions, eyebrow shaping, foot spa, body spa, or make-up for special occasions, etc. They may also be high profile individuals who have career that requires them to be “dolled-up” whenever they come to work. These individuals include TV personalities, business executives, and fashion models to name some. Some of them hire full-time cosmetologists just so they can have the service whenever they want to without falling in line in beauty salons. In addition, familiarity between customer and cosmetologist plays an important role in perfecting the customer’s desired look. This vocation also requires high level of physical energy. A hairdresser, for instance, may work on her feet for long hours. The longer one can stand physical stress, the more income one can expect.

There are various factors a cosmetologist should consider in doing the whole artistic work, including age of customer, theme/occasion, skin tone of customer, shape of customer’s face, the latest trend, and, of course, customer’s preferences. One should really be very apt to fashion and latest trends. Good cosmetologists are those who are really gifted with the ability to do the perfect matching of colors, hair style, and overall dolled-up aura. Customers sometimes do not have a definite style in mind. They just trust their cosmetologist to do what it takes to turn them into object of beauty.

As a graduate of Cosmetology course, there are various career options to choose from. One may start as Salon Receptionist or the one that first faces the customers that come to beauty salon. She should be very accommodating and well-groomed. As a receptionist, she is also tasked to provide consultancy to customers inquiring about treatments that they can avail for specific purpose. Another entry-level position is as Esthetician or the one taking care of facial skin treatment, body hair removals, foot or whole body spa, and massage. Being Nail Technician is another. She takes care of nail treatments, such as manicure and pedicure. Hairdresser, another specialist in the field, is responsible for hair works, such as trimming, straitening, styling, curling, etc. Makeup artist, on the other hand, is responsible for putting perfect blend of make-up on face.

One would not trust a bald man to give him treatment for baldness. The same is true for Cosmetology. A cosmetologist, more often than not, has to be an object of beauty herself for the customers to trust that she can indeed make them beautiful.

Culinary Arts is the art of skilfully preparing, cooking, and presenting food and drinks that are pleasant not only to eyes but to palate, as well. Culinary courses typically involve food science, food sanitation, diet, and nutrition in addition to different techniques in preparing, cooking, and presenting food and drinks. Culinary Arts is also covered as one of the major subjects in Hotel and Restaurant Management programs. Most people who take up Culinary Arts do it for pursuance of career in this field, but there are also some who do it to fulfil personal hobby and interest.

“Culinarian” is the general term for practitioners of different aspects of this field, but the actual title varies depending on person’s role and function in the industry. The one who is tasked to prepare and cook food in restaurant is called “cook” or “chef.” They work in hotels, restaurants, airlines, cruise lines, fast food chain, companies offering catering services, and in cafeteria of corporate offices, hospitals, schools, etc. There are those who move towards the management side of this profession – the managers of Food and Beverages section of large food establishments. Food and beverage controllers, on the other hand, are responsible for the canvass and purchase of ingredients needed for cooking. They are usually employed by hotels, fast food chain, and other large food establishments. Design specialists are the ones contracted to come up with new, unique, and themed menu. They also take care of planning the physical layout of food establishments and designing kitchen protocols, especially for new or start-up food establishments. Research and development specialists handle the development of new products for consumption of commercial food establishments. Products include kitchen tools and equipment, new seasonings and ingredients, new methods of cooking, etc. These new products are then sold to food establishments through Salespeople, who are expected to have the sufficient knowledge of products to be able to demonstrate it accurately to potential clients and gain positive response. Entrepreneurs in this field are those who prefer to capitalize on building their own food establishment – large of small – than to be employees contracted by food establishments to do the job for them.

Food, being a need more than wants, is always on demand. People, after a tiring day at work, look forward to something to cheer them up - and one of the known ways is eating delectable food. Food is also the queen of every special event. Families take time and allocate money for some more-than-regular dining experience once in awhile. Women, being the ones typically in-charge of preparing meals at home, are almost required to learn how to cook. Maybe there’s pinch of truth in saying “the fastest way to a man’s heart is through his stomach” – which probably explains why more than half of total population in culinary industry are women.

Succeeding in any of the abovementioned potential careers requires great deal of passion in food – not necessarily in eating them but in preparing, cooking, and presenting them. Culinary professionals find pleasure and satisfaction when people cannot get any bigger appetite for the food and drinks they prepared. All in all, Culinary Arts is indeed a very “delicious” career!

IndiaLebanonSpainThe United States

One of the best high paying jobs in the world for a non-managerial position is no other than being a flight attendant. Aside from having a great compensation package, they also get to travel the world for free. Now, that is indeed a dream job. The requirement before to be a flight attendant was really more on a physical basis albeit some of the airlines still use this formula. Beautiful girls bordering on the statuesque kind plus having a winsome smile usually have one foot in when they apply. For men flight attendants, although not as many as women flight attendants, having a nice general musculature and a height above 6 feet and facial features that could pass up as a cat-walk model are usually the norm to be considered as one. This was the old formula. However, now, because the list of qualified applicants with good physical attributes is so long and the fact that there are only a number of airlines in any given country, the human resources department of airlines are now looking for a little something extra among the resumes of the applicants. One of those little extras that will sure to get noticed by airline HRDs are no other than those who have graduated from a Flight and Convention Attendant course.

The Flight and Convention Attendant course is usually sponsored by aeronautical schools. Basically, this course would really give extreme advantage to other applicants who came from other disciplines because the airline companies wouldn’t need much time to train those who have graduated from this program. This course would deal mainly on customer service concepts, English competency, personal enhancement skill development and emergency and disaster preparation.

In the area of customer service, students of this course would learn about how to make guests feel welcomed. The Dos and Don’ts of dealing with customers will be discussed in detail because this will be the heart and soul of the job because everyday a flight attendant will face hundreds if not thousands of customers. Dealing with irate customers will be unavoidable as some flights are bound to be delayed. So techniques on how to calm down angry guests will really be a necessary skill to learn.

English competency would be the language of choice but this may not be the case in some countries where this course is being offered. International businessmen and tourists usually know how to speak English and so getting a good command of the English would be more or less be required.

Personal enhancement skill development would pertain on how to be a power dresser, having well enunciated diction and knowledge on some etiquette since people who fly are usually the crème de la crème of society.

Emergency and disaster preparation is also another important aspect in being a flight or convention attendant. Since no one can predict what can happen in a minute, flight and convention attendant course graduates are taught how to handle emergencies and so they could really do CPR, knows what to do in case of fire, earthquakes or any situation that might need evacuation.

The course combines flight attendants and convention attendants because they would basically be doing the same thing and so the training would be the same, the only difference is that flight attendant openings among airlines are scarce and is always on a waitlist basis, and so while waiting for the airlines to call up, being a convention attendant would be a good filler job to pay up the bills.

Study Heavy Equipment Maintenance

Choose where you would like to study Heavy Equipment Maintenance:

IndiaThe United States

Heavy equipments are those that are used in building construction and highways, in mining, and in large agricultural farms. These include bulldozers, railcars, trucks, tractors, electric shovels, cranes, etc. These industries are into “heavy” works that cannot be done manually by employees within reasonable amount of time. It is this fact that brought heavy equipment in the picture. These equipments do the work; although, just like any other machines, these are controlled, operated, and maintained by human. Since these industries rely heavily on heavy equipment, it is of great importance that every piece works at full capacity. Otherwise, this would warrant ceased or slowed operations; hence, cost to company. Companies also want to secure its investment by ensuring equipment they bought can be used the longest possible time (especially because heavy equipment are expensive). More than these reasons, the use of faulty heavy equipment could put life of people using or around it at risk. No one would want to be cut in half by electronic shovel that went out of control in the middle of its job!

There are commercial companies that offer heavy equipment maintenance solutions. These are usually the companies that also produce heavy equipment, and maintenance is part of their after-sales support. These companies offer complete design, installation, commissioning, and repair of heavy equipment. Industries like mining and civil construction (buildings, highways, bridges, etc.) may also opt to employ full-time heavy equipment maintenance mechanics since equipment maintenance is a crucial part of their day-to-day operations.

Heavy Equipment Maintenance is the field that covers the study of design, fuel, electrical, automotive, transmission, and mechanical systems of heavy equipment; welding; pneumatics; safe and environment-friendly checking procedures; repairing of parts of equipment; proper way of parking or storing heavy equipment onsite and offsite; and hydraulics. Graduates of this field can work as heavy equipment mechanic, consultant, or trainer.

Heavy equipment maintenance mechanics are responsible for doing the regular maintenance check on heavy equipment; providing operations’ staff technical instructions on how to operate the equipment; conducting fault diagnostics on repair and maintenance activities; acting on results of fault diagnostics and analysis of maintenance activities; and implementing safety protocols in using and storing heavy equipment. To acquire expertise, mechanics usually specialize in one area or type of heavy equipment: (1) it can be mobile heavy equipment, such as excavators, bulldozers, and graders. This one gives the largest employment rate among the specializations under this field. Mechanics with this specialization are typically employed by commercial companies that produce, distribute, or lease heavy equipment. They may also get employment from the federal government as mechanics of tanks and armoured equipment; (2) it can also be a specialization in farm equipment, such as lawn tractors; and (3) another specialization is the railcar equipment, including subway cars and rolling stock.

Employers would, of course, go for applicants with mechanical aptitude. Likewise, since the use of hand-held diagnostic devices is becoming the trend, applicants should feel comfortable with using computer and electronic devices. Focus on details, especially in design and operations of equipment per the operations manual, is very critical. Students can enrol in training programs after graduating from High School, but certification is issued only after successfully passing the written and hands-on exams administered by legit certifying bodies in the industry.

Study Martial Arts

Choose where you would like to study Martial Arts:

FranceIndiaThe United States

What do Bruce Lee, Jet Li, Steven Seagal and Chuck Norris have in common aside from being movie stars? The answer is they are all practitioners of one form of martial arts or another. Bruce Lee introduced to the world Jeet Kune do, Jet Li is a member of the Beijing National Wushu Champion Team, Steven Seagal is an Aikido master, Chuck Norris was the World Middleweight Karate Champion in the 60s. It is actually because of their exposure to martial arts that paved the way of their trip to Hollywood and movie stardom.

Martial Arts is actually a codified set of movements designed for combat and defensive purposes. Those engaging in Martial Arts are more or less referred to as martial artists. As popularized by Bruce Lee, Martial Arts connotes the idea that it originated exclusively from China, his homeland, but actually it is not. Surprisingly, from almost any corner of the world, there is actually a form of martial arts developed way long ago even before Bruce Lee appeared on betamax tapes. Slaves in Brazil have developed Capoeira which specializes in kicks, sweeps and head butts. The Russians have Sambo, when translated from vernacular would mean self defense without weapons, is a mix of Judo and wrestling styles derived from the different regions in Russia. The Israelis have developed what is known now as Krav Maga. Krav Maga is used mainly in close combat situations and the aim is to survive hence giving emphasis to neutralizing threats and how to escape quickly from potentially dangerous situations. It is really not surprising to find a local form of martial arts at almost any part of the globe. This may be attributed to the different circumstances that a culture or individual were subjected to. Martial Arts technically came about out of survival or necessity.

As it is known that martial arts comes in many forms, a common denominator is that there is a system of progression and that mastery can only be achieved through patience, hard work and perseverance. Before becoming an expert, one must be prepared to undergo years of mental and physical training. Martial Arts is not limited to hand-to-hand combat. The efficient handling of hand weapon like knives, sticks, sword, and spears are also included in its scope.

Martial Arts can be subdivided into three basic categories, depending on what area of focus a particular style namely: striking, grappling and weapons training. Capoeira, Boxing, Wing Chun, Muay Thai, Karate, Kung-Fu are examples of disciplines specializing in striking. Sambo, Judo, Aikido, Jiu-Jitsu, Wrestling are forms of Martial Arts that are those whose forte is grappling. Fencing, Kendo, and Arnis De Mano (stick fighting) are the arts that wield weapons as their specialty. Usually, all form of Martial Arts would fall into any of those category mentioned.

Martial Arts is not what it is regarded then, a self-defense style that imitates the movement of an animal as depicted by typical Chinese action movies. Now, Martial Arts is regarded truly as an art in a truest sense with physical, mental and, for some, spiritual development as the main objective of those interested in learning.

Job positions for Martial Arts:

Mixed Martial Arts Fighter

For most Martial Arts practitioners, competing in the Ultimate Fighting Championship or more commonly called as UFC is a goal, if not the ultimate goal. Not only would they showcase their individual skill in combat arts but it is also a good advertisement for their respective schools or dojo. Before, Martial Arts experts would only be recognized if they are good enough to win a championship title and then get discovered by a movie outfit. Chuck Norris and Jet Li are just among a few who got commercial success, so still becoming a champion does not really guarantee fame and fortune. However now, with the onset of pay-per-view showing mixed Martial Arts competitions like the UFC, Pride and Golden Boy Production's Affliction, martial artists have now an avenue to show the world how good they are at the same time getting good money (six figures if fight is a main event).

Unlike before, competitions are on a discipline-basis, like, if it's just judo, then all the competitors would also be skilled in judo, but in a mixed Martial Arts competition, a judo master may be pitted against a Jiu-Jitsu black belter, a wrestler, a kickboxer or any type of Martial Arts Fighter.

In a mixed Martial Arts competition, fights are on a contract basis giving competing parties lead time to prepare and assess their opponent’s strengths and weaknesses. Like in the case of the Jon Fitch vs. Diego Sanchez match up, Jon Fitch knew that Diego Sanchez have a wide array of submission techniques and so during his practice sessions in preparation for the fight, he made an effort on how to defend against Diego’s favorite moves and holds. His preparations bore fruit as he already knew how to slip his way out of guillotine chokes and leg triangles which Diego threw at him relentlessly.

To be really an excellent Mixed Martial Arts Fighter like George St. Pierre, the current Welterweight UFC Champion, a professional fighter should, first of all, must have the physical conditioning to withstand potential punishments their body might receive from their opponents. It is usually the conditioning that determines the outcome of the fight when they go the distance or when both fighters are evenly skilled.
During pre-fight, since weight class is now being observed, they have to watch what they eat so as not to go over the weight limit. Learning submission techniques like an armbar hold, different choke styles and other arm and leg holds is a plus because once they know how to do them, they can also defend against these situations.

Becoming a champion, knowledge in more than one form of Martial Arts style is preferred as a fighter would most likely be facing opponents of different styles. A good mixed of skills would be wrestling for take-down maneuvers, Jiu-Jitsu for grappling and submission techniques and some boxing and Muaythai to hold up your ground during stand up striking exchanges.

As Mixed Martial Arts is gaining more acceptance as a mainstream sport like boxing and wrestling and the prize money is approaching the million dollar mark apart from becoming movie stars as some are already appearing in TV shows and movies, being a Mixed Martial Arts Fighter seems like a promising career.

Martial Arts Coordinator

Hollywood action films typically were mostly cowboy flicks or World War II themed movies. John Wayne, James Coburn, Klaus Kinski and Henry Fonda were then regarded as the most sought after action stars but it was John Wayne who was the most notable of all, starring in both cowboys and World War II movies alike. Then came Bruce Lee, a Martial Arts expert who wowed the world with his crafty moves and his signature battle cry and action movies were never the same.

The transformation of the action genre has then been continually evolving and movie goers are more than ever hungry for much complex action sequences. Because of the clamor for complicated fight scenes, movie producers are now tapping martial arts experts as Martial Arts Coordinators to draw out action-packed, breath-taking action scenes while at same time staying realistically possible. Movie goers are now very discerning and usually would know if some scenes are unbelievably impossible in real life. Movies that make unrealistic scenes were usually heavily criticized because the scenes were not properly thought out. Movie outfits realized that action movies are not like any other genre where you put someone like Brad Pitt or Tom Cruise in the cast and the movie is expected to do well.

In the movie “Matrix,” although the movie is fictional and the setting is virtual reality, the audience were awed and literally taken off their seats because the fight scenes were managed so well to remain believable plus enhanced by the use of slow-motion spinning camera effects while dodging bullets. The directors of the movie made it a point to get leading Martial Arts Coordinators to help develop the film’s fight scene sequences. The fight scenes contributed to the total appeal of the movie even though Keanu Reeves is not an actual martial artist to speak of and the result was that the movie became one of the top-grossing thrillers of all time during that time. Because of the success of the film, other movie outfits soon followed suit and suddenly Martial Arts Coordinators are being sought after to become fight scenes directors, coordinators or consultants. Box office hits like “The Transporter,” “Aeon Flux,” “Resident Evil” and “300” to name a few were all movies that made use of the services of professional martial artists for their spectacular fight action sequences. Without the fight scenes, these movies would not have been as successful as they had been.

The Martial Arts Coordinators contacted by big Hollywood productions were not contacted because they have friends in the studio but rather they worked hard for their reputations to get known. Probably, these experts are holders of numerous professional competition titles themselves or run Martial Arts schools that have produced several champions in their stable. With mixed Martial Arts currently gaining momentum as the next big contact sports, Martial Arts schools have never been busier. During a mixed Martial Arts competition like UFC or Affliction, the Martial Arts schools or dojos of the fighters are also mentioned because a victory of the fighter is a victory of the school too.

A little bit of trivia about the movie “Bloodsport,” which starred by Jean-Claude Van Damme based on a true story, the Martial Arts Coordinator of the fight scenes was the actual character Van Damme was portraying.

Mechanics, which includes such fields of study as engineering mechanics, applied mechanics, and mechanical engineering (the names of these fields are more or less interchangeable), focuses on the design and construction of machines and mechanical devices. In scientific terminology, the word “mechanics” refers to the study of motion and the forces that produce it. For an engineer, mechanics is all about harnessing those forces and using them to create productive and useful devices. Mechanical engineers need to have strong knowledge of physics, calculus, and often chemistry.
 
Degree programs in mechanical engineering, applied mechanics, and engineering mechanics all have slightly different approaches. Typically, a program in mechanical engineering has a much broader focus area – it may include thermodynamics, computer programming, optics and sometimes even quantum mechanics. Applied mechanics and engineering mechanics, however, usually focus more narrowly on the design and construction of actual machines. These disciplines are more concerned with the details of design and construction than with the underlying scientific principles.
 
Personal Qualities
  • Affinity for mathematics
  • Logical thinking, strong problem-solving skills
  • Patience and acute attention to detail
  • Desire to solve real-world (sometimes mundane) problems
  • Fascination with machines and mechanical devices

Study Options
 
Thanks to the enormous quantity and diversity of machines in our technology-laden societies, there are a huge variety of subjects to study within the field of mechanics and mechanical engineering. Most programs in this discipline require students to choose an area of concentration, such as automotive mechanics, aerospace mechanics, or industrial mechanics. The selection of a concentration or area of focus is not final (it is usually possible to cross over into a different field from the one that you focus on in college), but it will nonetheless have a significant impact on your eventual job-search process.
 
Depending on your specific career goals, choosing between applied mechanics/engineering mechanics and mechanical engineering will also be important. Those who hope to become engineers, filling the leading roles on projects and taking responsibility for their success, are better off choosing mechanical engineering. This field typically requires several years of schooling beyond the college level, but also leads to the most lucrative and challenging careers. Studying engineering mechanics or applied mechanics, on the other hand, is a good way to reduce the amount of time you will spend in school. The drawback is that it prepares students for careers that do not pay as well.
 
Career Options
 
Mechanical engineering, applied mechanics, and engineering mechanics are all highly career-specific fields of study. Careers in mechanical fields, however, are fairly diverse. There are many jobs available to graduates with degrees in these areas, which can be separated into 2 categories: applied and academic. The overwhelming majority of mechanical engineers work in real-world industries such as transportation or energy, but a select few obtain advanced degrees and go into academia. These hard-working individuals contribute to the advance at of engineering knowledge and help to train the world's next generation of mechanical engineers.

ArgentinaAustraliaIndiaRussiaSpainThe United StatesVenezuela

Mining is a resource extractive venture. Operational and environmental risks and hazards come along with this business; thus, the need for an efficient and effective mining maintenance department that would address and mitigate the potential risks during operations and ensure the compliance of processes to environmental regulations and laws governing the area of operations. Mining maintenance personnel play a broad and crucial part in mining operations.

Mining maintenance personnel, in tandem with the mining engineers and geologists, are responsible in preparing the operations’ environmental risk assessment program. This program is done to ascertain potential hazards to the local geology and immediate biophysical environment, which includes the flora and fauna, water aquifers, upstream and downstream water bodies, and, of course, the local population, are mitigated. They are also in charge of implementing the environmental protection and enhancement program of the operations, which includes rehabilitation of mined-out areas and ensuring that tailings and other mine wastes do not leach into nearby water bodies and aquifers.

The upkeep of tools and equipment is another aspect of Mining Maintenance. In order to ensure cost-efficient operations, it is imperative that equipments are operating in full capacity. Mining maintenance personnel see to it that equipment are installed properly and are given the recommended downtime and lubrication to avoid machine breakdown. Maintenance of facilities, such as buildings structures and the delivery and distribution of water and electricity are also parts of the job. They also ensure that hazardous supplies, such as combustible materials, blasting equipment, and explosives are handled and stored properly to avoid accidents in the mine site.

Mining Maintenance education and training should impart the core competencies necessary so that candidates would be able to do their jobs when deployed in the field. Traineeships on the types of mining procedures, such as strip/surface, benching, open pit, and underground mining would really help the trainees/students acquire the technical skills required of the field. Equally important is training on risks identification and hazards assessment of these operations, and the corresponding preventive and safety standards to address identified risks. They should be imbued with social responsibility and environmental awareness to make them responsible operators. The traineeship should also include courses on mining equipment and tools - including hands-on experience on their actual use and operations. Students and trainees should have sufficient exposure to the actual operations of mining machineries, such as blasting equipment and pneumatic drills; and heavy equipment, such as pay loaders, backhoes, and bulldozers. On the management side, trainees study economics and management concepts, such as economies of scale, cost accounting, and budgeting.

Mining Maintenance is a job that requires monitoring and evaluation of processes and policies. It is a supervisory job that requires dynamic and innovative leadership. It is for people who possess strong communication and sound decision-making skills and a safety-first attitude. Ideal candidates should be objective, keen to details, and possess the innate ability and drive to adhere to strict protocols and predetermined procedures. Being physically fit to endure the rigors and hazards of the mine site is as important as other qualifications aforementioned.

When George Young of the National Geographic said, “Everything is connected with everything else” and “Everything goes somewhere,” he may have had in his mind what an extreme mess it would be when all the pipes in the world were busted. No amount of plumbers could do with their pipe wrenches against a deluge of wastes that could possibly pollute the earth and environment.

Could there be jerry-builts – inferior pipes breaking and bursting, and no-knowledgeable plumbers at these times when everything is automated, e-mailed and facebooked, and the water pipelines in the homes and buildings were made of specially hardened material? Today is not the thousand and thousand years back when plumbers have no schools to study plumbing and pipes were not made of high grade material but toxic lead.

Today we have Plumbing Course with Level 2 Technical Certificate.

Plumbing is a career that is very much a necessity which makes it a stable job. Technology evolves very rapidly and economy can slump; but plumbing can not be phased out. Students in plumbing can pursue a two-year associate degree course with a career diploma.

Plumbing courses teach students how to identify the many different kinds of commercial drawings. They are taught on the installation of piping components and systems for commercial properties. Students learn the types of venting systems such as wet and common venting, combination waste and venting, utility and loop, and circuit venting.

They learn the proper care and use of plumbing tools and equipment: augers, snakes, wrenches, pipe cutters; use of welding and soldering equipment and pipe fitting techniques. They learn the causes of waste system stoppage and place of occurrence, and the solution to these problems.

Plumbing classes teach math, science, physics, chemistry, safety issues, and regulatory procedures and building codes. Apprenticeship is a part of the important hands-on skills required to students. Plumbing schools were forged to generate students with careers in pipefitting, pipe laying, and other areas related to plumbing and erecting buildings; produce plumbers who go into enterprise of their own.

Students learn the complex knowledge of pipe, pipe laying, installation, tools, and safety procedures. Coursework in the plumbing degree programs are: mathematics, applied physics, drafting and blueprint reading, safety procedures, and plumbing regulations.

They are also taught on the use of plumbing tools, categorize various classes of pipes, and install pipe systems and plumbing fixtures. They should finish the on-the-job training required by the school. Plumbers are supposed to have licensed and their credential include amount of work experience and passing of knowledge test.

In school, plumbing students learn the general job responsibilities of job contractors. The knowledge is essential in their job after their studies. These are:

1. Compatibility of working with team of plumbers and contractors;

2. Designing new layouts and blueprints;

3. Understanding codes and operation of plumbing systems;

4. Checking for obstructions and electrical wiring;

5. Assembling systems;

6. Connecting lengths of pipe with fittings;

7. Using pipe laying materials such as plastic, concrete, clay, and cast-iron;

8. Installing and repairing high-pressure and low-pressure pipes.

Graduate students in plumbing could easily find many different jobs of their choice with their professional degree or their certificate as passport in their career. They are among the large entity that consist the construction industry, if not the highest paid and much less the people that missed. These are the people that install piping for water, waste disposal, and gas systems; install household fixtures, appliances (from showers and toilets to dishwasher and water heaters) for both homes and commercial buildings.

Government authorities have established codes governing design, installation, and minimum number of fixtures needed in buildings based on the number of dwellers. Plumbing should concern environmental security for the benefit of man and its progeny.

If there will be an award as to what profession has inspired the most TV shows, movies, and novels, no doubt the runaway winner would be a Private Detective. Peter Falk became famous because of his portrayal of a private detective in the show “Columbo,” and so as Tom Selleck as Thomas Magnum of “Magnum P.I.” Perhaps, the most famous fictional private detective is Sherlock Holmes, who exudes brilliant deductive reasoning and sharp observation skills to solve the most difficult cases.

Private Detectives, though, portrayed to solve crimes, which are really the police’s job, are persons who can be commissioned to make investigations. More often, private investigators are hired by lawyers handling mostly civil cases like divorce, custody and alimony case proceedings, and sometimes in criminal cases too. In divorce and child custody cases, private detectives are commissioned to get pictures of either party in a compromising position like the husband or wife getting out of a casino, getting in a motel or hotel with another man or woman or anything that would give the client added weapons in winning the case.

Insurance companies also hire private detectives to investigate suspicious claims. Making sure that reported incidents are double checked is enough to make a private detective busy with so many claims being filed. Usual insurance frauds appear in the form of forged documents. Forged death certificates, forged IDs and forged special power of attorneys are enough to cash in insurance claims. Especially if there is a large amount of money involved, double checking these documents and making sure if the death of the supposed to be dead did really happen would be a cinch for a veteran private detective.

When not in league with lawyers and insurance companies, Private Detectives’ offices are swarmed by husbands and wives who would just like to make sure that their partners are seeing someone else behind their back. Private detectives are also oftentimes asked to track down persons who have gone into hiding due to large amounts of debts.

More often, Private Detective agencies tend to specialize in what kind of surveillance or service they offer. Many agencies are involved only in serving and delivering summons, subpoenas and other legal documents to the different parties involved in a legal case. Some private investigators only work with corporations who have intellectual properties and trade secrets to protect. With crimes also happening in the computer, there are now Private Detectives who specialize in computer forensics. Data retrieval and tracing are now among the skills of specialized private investigators.

Actually, before accepting a job, the private investigator and the commissioning party must understand each other very well. Specifying what needs to be done is the most important thing both parties must agree to because professional fees depend on how hard an assignment is.

Should anyone want to be a Private Detective and live a life of sleuthing courses are now offered specializing on how to become better detectives. Enrolling in Private Detective courses is important because things like what is admissible in court and what are not would be taught.

Job positions for Private Investigator:

Corporate Detective

Real life private detectives are not like those we see from TV shows and the movies. Storylines of TV shows and movies are a bit exaggerated so as to imbibe viewer interests. Real life detectives however do not solve criminal cases and would refer to police authorities whatever information they may know that may lead to solving of a case. Private detectives usually are asked to do tracking and surveillance tasks and a bit of picture taking. Surveillance, before, means that the detective would follow someone for a period of time and then report to his client a detailed account of where the subject went for let’s say the last three days and that’s it. However in this age and time, the definition of surveillance has somewhat evolved. Now, surveillance would also include the use of covert electronic gadgets such as cameras and listening devices. Presently, there are independent private detectives who specialize only in electronic surveillance. These specialized private detectives are experts on installing and operating these special gizmos. Also included in their repertoire of skills is computer hacking to look for evidences hidden inside computer workstations. Because these special private detectives usually have private corporations as usual clients, thus they became to be known as Corporate Investigators.

Most corporations already have a security department but usual concerns of security are vandalism and peace and order in the buildings. Sometimes, big companies suspect an employee of being involved in fraudulent activities resulting to losses for the said company and these types of crimes usually need to be dealt in a discreet manner so professional detectives are called in. Also, labor laws protect employees from baseless termination so finding evidence of malevolence towards the company would ensure that the company is adhering to labor laws. Sometimes companies would like to be sure that the one they are hiring or promoting to an important corporate post doesn’t have a stink of any kind and wants to have their backgrounds checked just before signing them. Some bosses would just like to know how their staff behaves in their absence. These types of assignments are where the cameras and bugging devices are conspicuously set up. Perhaps, the most common reason why companies call third party Corporate Detectives is to erase suspicion of whitewashing an investigation when something malevolent happens like there is missing money or a valuable thing, company operations got disrupted on a large scale or there is someone causing sabotage to the company.

Becoming a Corporate Detective is a bit trickier than ordinary private detectives. Corporate Detectives usually come in teams to cover more grounds specially when doing surveillance jobs. Usually, one team member is in charge of the equipments, the other one is the computer expert and if there’s a third one that usually would be an auditor or a former auditor who can leaf through financial reports with ease in case fraud or embezzlement are the cases in question. Enrolling in private detective courses would be the first step but to become a specialized private detective like a Corporate Investigator, years of experience usually is the best teacher.

FranceGermanyIndiaRussiaSloveniaSpainSwitzerlandThe United States

One of the by-products of the computer age is the enablement of Robotics Technology. Without microchips, software and corresponding hardware, automated moving machines would not be possible. Microchips store the programs and codes that tell the robot what to do while the hardware provides the shell that defines the form of the robot. Currently, robots are widely used in just about any aspect of human life. Robots are now being used in manufacturing, assembly, packing, mining, space exploration, in surgical procedures, agriculture, mass production of consumer and industrial commodities and just about any field where extreme precision and heavy lifting are needed. Perhaps, the biggest contribution of robots to man is the etching of microchips. Almost everything now has a microchip, from computers to automobiles to cell phones to household appliances and even kid’s toys have microchip inside them.

In the science fiction genre, movies like “Transformers,” “Wall-E,” “I-Robot,” “A.I.”, “(short for Artificial Intelligence) ”Terminator,” “Robocop,” “Short Circuit” and “Star Wars” are all themed with robots and all were proven blockbusters in the tills. In the literary world, Isaac Asimov, tickled our imagination and fascination with best-selling novels centered on robots, in fact,” I-Robot” and “A.I. “were among them. Even kids are not spared from robots as popular cartoons uses robots. Who doesn’t know “Voltes V,” who started all the hoopla about vehicles bolting together to form one giant robot to defend the world from invading aliens?

Based on the movies and amount of books written about robots, it can be surmised that humans are indeed fascinated with robots. Maybe because robots symbolizes how great truly the human mind is. When we see a fictional robot like we did in the movie “Transformers” doing complex actions like transforming, we can’t help but gasp in awe and quietly say in our minds “how did they do that?”

Indeed, creating robots is a complex endeavor. One has to have very strong foundation in mathematics and physics. Probably, a degree in mechanical engineering or physics would be a good stepping stone to understanding basic concepts of motion and movements and then coupled by knowledge in computer programming to tell specifically what the robot is supposed to do.

The field of Robotics still has a long way to go. Right now, robotics scientists are just merely touching the tip of the iceberg. Currently, trends in Robotics are making use of nanotechnology. Dan Brown made mention of nanotechnology in his book “Deception Point” where robot insects are used as spies. Also, the technology that may be or may not be real to date and one that has sparked countless debates, the one where computers and robot are given the capability to think for themselves is allegedly being developed.

There will come a day when personal secretaries, traffic aides and house cleaners will be robots. Imagine, with a single command like “robot, wash the dishes” or “robot, mow the lawn” and the robot will do all your bidding provided it is in their programming. When this day has come to pass, it means that man can truly achieve what they conceive.

Job positions for Robotics:

Machinist

Those working in the robotics industry usually are given a special respect by those people who know them. Maybe because they are perceived to be using complex mathematical coefficients or doing some ultra high complex programs that would enable robots to transform to a car or something of that sort. This may be true as those dealing with robots needs to be really good in higher mathematics, physics, programming, mechanical and electrical engineering and other skills that would understand rocket science literally and figuratively.
However, there is one profession that is essential in the field of robotics without a doctorate and that is the good old Machinist.
A Machinist is the guy who makes use of machine tools to fabricate or modify parts, usually those parts made of metal. After the engineers have finished the blueprint of let’s say, a prototype robot design, the drawing will be then forwarded to a Machinist who will fabricate the parts specified in the blueprint. Being able to understand the blueprint alone already requires a bit of knowledge of engineering concepts and execute them precisely and exactly as written on paper.

Apart from preciseness of execution, a certain level of knowledge in metals is needed as different kinds of metals have different properties hence needed to be treated differently. Metals commonly a Machinist would usually be working on would be steel, aluminum, brass, copper and alloys derived from these metals. Vanadium, zinc, lead and manganese are less common materials but some important alloys are from these metals so a working knowledge on alloying would come in handy. However in robotics, uncommon metals like titanium, chromium, molybdenum, tungsten and special alloys like Inconel and Hastelloy (also sometimes called the superalloys) would be expected to be more heavily used as the robots would be special machines and thus needs to be made of sterner stuff. A Machinist would also be asked to repair machine tools and maintain industrial machines as well. To effectively carry out fabrication and repair parts and machines, the Machinist should be somewhat calculating and should be comfortable with instruments like a micrometer, dial caliper, hermaphrodite caliper and a Vernier caliper. Effectively use dial indicators, planer gauges, ring gauges and telescoping gauges for monitoring, inspecting and testing purposes. Fabrication would entail extensive knowledge of crankshaft grinders, sharpeners and surface grinders and as well as drum lathes, engine lathes, flywheel lathes and turning lathes. Apart from the simple tools (meaning no built-in software), machinists should also be acquainted with computerized numerical control machines called CNC in machinists’ parlance. With all the machines the Machinist operates, most likely, it would also be his responsibility to care and maintain these machines. Another thing that should be inherent to Machinists is a good listening and comprehension skill. Before the Machinist executes the details in the blueprint, the design engineers may need to stress some points or give additional instructions.

Opportunities for Machinists in the field of robotics are ever increasing. Right now, almost every industry uses robots/machines in production, assembly and packaging and maintenance and repair of these expensive machines of course would be their department. At present, a lot of companies specializing in robotics are opening up like mushrooms and for sure services of Machinists would be very much in high demand.

Robotics Engineer

George Lucas of the “Star Wars” fame is probably a robotics engineer or employs a very good one to come up with an array of robot designs in the said movie saga. Who would forget C3P0, a protocol droid who knows all languages spoken in the fictional world and R2D2, the whistling robot who have saved Luke Skywalker and Obi Wan Kenobi numerous times? The remarkable thing about the robots is that they were not simply metal casings given life by special effects. In fact, a special edition book was even published containing all the engineering details of all machines robots, ships, weapons and all and, of course, this was 1977, a time when personal computers was an alien term then. Because of the richness of the engineering details, it cannot be helped thinking that George Lucas must have had help from someone whose field of specialization is robotics engineering.

Robot engineers would be the stereo-typed fat guy who wears thick-rimmed glasses with disheveled hair and a bit of a long beard. Kidding aside, robotics engineers are the ones who conceptualize robots from design to manufacturing of robots. For example, NASA would need a robot that would collect samples in Mars’ arid terrain. Given the terrain, weather, temperature of Mars, the robotics engineer would work around these given parameters to come up with a design that should cope with Mars’ harsh weather and at the same time can easily obtain soil and rock samples. The engineer would consider using the sturdiest metals so the robot would not melt and then probably would think of a design that can easily enable the robot to gallop through Mars’ rocks and sands. Probably, the engineer would also create mechanical arms that can stretch at any angles to scoop up samples without stopping in its tracks. Basically, something of this sort would be what a Robotics Engineer would do. Actually, a Robotics Engineer is one of those jobs that the saying “anything goes” really applies. Anything goes because the robot to be designed would depend on its purpose. Almost, if not all, industries could use a robot to automize their operations. Right now, most industrial companies use robots to pack, assemble and lift heavy objects a normal man would not be able to do with ease and speed. Currently, most industrial robots are simulations of the human hand or the gripper.

To be a Robotics Engineer, courses are now offered in prestigious universities as a post graduate course for electrical, mechanical and computer engineers. A word of caution though, expect the course to be laced with very high physics concepts and complex algorithms, formulas, coefficients, mathematical expressions perhaps only enrollees would get to know they exist. Also, expect a strict admittance to the course as this is not a course for everyone. Probably, those who would be lucky to be admitted are those who would get a genius rating in preliminary I.Q. tests.

Once a certified Robotics Engineer, opportunities are endless. As mentioned already, almost all industries, be it automotive, medical, semi-conductors, mining, and space exploration to name a few would be willing to pay top dollar for the services of a robotics engineer. Perhaps, as far as the saying “shoot for the moon” goes, Robotics Engineer is one of those professions that can literally use them in a sentence and mean them literally.

Study Shipping

GreeceSpainSwedenThe United KingdomThe United States

One of the most lucrative industries ever since it was instigated is no other than shipping. Shipping has been lucrative indeed as it allows transport of goods by the bulk, usually measured by metric tons. Sea route is the only means of transporting goods for the purpose of commerce and trade as airlines doesn’t cater to this business model as the 747s and Concordes are not designed for this kind of transport.

Seaports are an integral part of any country’s economy as it is the only place where international trade occurs. It is the only place where imported and exported goods go in and out and no other else. In light of this, this implies that shipping is not just as simple as making a ship go from Point A to Point B as there is also the matter of customs and port authorities to clear. Clearances from customs and port authorities are actually the complicated part as they require lots of paperwork to be presented before giving their stamp of approval for release. Due to the voluminous paperwork entailed to actually get a ship dock out and dock in a port, shipping businesses have made it a point to hire people who have earned a degree in Shipping.

Those who want to build careers in the shipping industry could have a foot in by enrolling in a Shipping course. Shipping as a course would familiarize students on the different documents needed for a smooth flow of ships getting from one port to another. Every time a ship deviate from its schedule, would literally translate to losses. To delay a ship, it would only need one missing document or one erroneous entry in the document, and that is the worst thing that could happen to a shipping business apart from colliding with another ship. In a Shipping course, students will learn what a bill of lading is, a buyers order, a bank guarantee, SGS Certification, the different insurance packages, a packaging note, a letter of credit, a container terminal order and SAD 500 among many others, and how to fill them out. Learning the different documents is only a part of this course as students would also learn how a port operates in relation to the shipping industry and as well as from the point of view of the host government.

Of course, a little bit of seamanship would also be taught. There would be times when they would be actually needed aboard a ship and so they would need knowledge on what to do if they are required to be on a ship.

Aside from acquisition of permits from the different government branches that may have a concern with regards to operation of a shipping line, students would also need to have a good grasp of international law and the different laws of different countries that a ship may have a port of call. As we know different countries would have different laws regarding shipping operations and so students would just need to know the different laws pervading from different countries where they may be doing businesses to.

Graduates of this course may find doing clerical jobs at first but once they get experience and have gained contacts, finding a financially rewarding job is easy as pie.

CanadaRussiaSpainThe United KingdomThe United States

Welding is an industrial process that is taking less credit than it should – mainly because it’s a backstage player. People get to see the finished product without the recognition of the back processes that made the integration of different parts of that product possible. There are only few people who come to realize that they are surrounded by things that are made possible by welding – the parts of the car you are riding are joined by welding, connecting various parts of refrigerator at home is made possible by welding, the airplane flying up there becomes a one-piece craft because of welding. These are just few of million other things that we use or see everyday which were made possible by welding. Welding is a multidisciplinary engineering field that involves materials science, design, quality inspection, mechanical system, and electronic systems among the major ones.

Decades ago, the only means metals get connected is through forge welding or the process of pounding and heating (done by blacksmiths). Welding is now defined as the process of fabricating or permanently joining separate parts of metals and thermoplastics (metal is more common) to form single-part equipment. Generally, this is done by melting part of the material and adding filler materials that form a strong joint when they cool down. Basically, pressure and heat produce the weld. There are many types of energy resources that can be used in welding metals, including laser, gas flame, friction, electric arc, electron beam, and even ultrasound.

Welding is a critical industry behind most segment of world’s economy. In the United States alone, over 50% of products it produced are, in a way or another, impacted by welding. Welding engineers build pipelines, airplanes, automobiles, robots, welding machine, home appliances, and lots of other equipment known to mankind. They are also responsible for material selection and joint design. They also do recommendation about the needed repair procedure or redesign of equipment after thorough failure analysis.

There are different types of Welding, depending on resources used to weld and the base materials that will be connected: (1) Gas Welding is widely used in joining or repairing pipes, tubes, and other hallow items that cannot stand higher temperature. This is also commonly used in jewellery industry; (2) Arc Welding uses electric current to join materials and is known to be the simplest and less expensive of all methods; (3 Resistance Welding is an approach where resistance of individual metal pieces to each other produces electric current which, in turn, produces heat that is used in joining them. This is known to be the most environment-friendly of all types. Unfortunately, this is a very expensive method; (4) Solid State Welding is the type where the base metal retains its original properties mainly because it does not undergo significant heating or melting process. In this type, fusion of metals happens even before the metal reaches its melting point; (5) Radiant Energy Welding involves the use of energy, electron, and laser beams on base metal. This is one of the latest, fastest, most accurate, but most expensive types; (6) Thermochemical Welding is the type that uses chemical reactions to produce heat that would allow for melting and joining of metal parts; and (7) Friction Welding is the type that does not emit or make use of spark, fumes, sprays, and intense light.

The quality of Welding is measured in terms of its strength, as well as the strength of materials around the weld. There are many factors that can affect the quality, including the welding method used, nature of base material, design of the joint, etc. There are destructive and non-destructive methods of testing the quality of welding. Testing is done to make sure that the weld is free of defect and durable – i.e., with acceptable level of distortion, acceptable level of residual stresses, and acceptable heat-affected zone properties. Can you imagine a car losing one of its doors while driving to work?

The Welding programs being offered in training and technical schools nowadays are geared towards equipping students with technical knowledge on operating in this field and with management acumen to face the challenges in welding of the present and future generations. Welding is also offered as Master’s and Doctoral degree programs, with focus on strategic, philosophical, and innovation parts. Welding certification is facilitated by recognized welding institutions and is taken by those who seek mastery in specific type of welding - either as a personal decision to improve skill or as an act of compliance to employer’s training requirements. Employers typically give extensive practical test to applicants prior to hiring to see if they possess the needed knowledge in actually doing the work.

The Welding industry is never far behind the latest technologies and innovations. It is often done in an industrial setting, but nowadays it can also be done in open air, outer space, or even under water! This industry is literally starving for competent welding engineers to sustain the growing needs of the world.
