Know About the Job
What does it take to be a wheelchair repair technician? If you already work with electric wheelchairs, you’re halfway there. The technical skills required are pretty straight forward, although it will take some time to learn the ins and outs of all the wheelchairs on the market. Some require very specific skill sets in order to do the repairs necessary. But that kind of education comes with experience and time. Being enthusiastic about electronics and learning new skills is enough to prepare you for the technical side of the job as a scooter repair tech.
But repairing wheelchairs isn’t the only thing you need to be able to do. In addition, you’ve got to have the patience and people skills to deal with individuals who are often unhappy about what’s going on. They’ll be happy to see you, in most cases, but they will be dealing with a situation that is frustrating and potentially embarrassing. That’s why we emphasize customer service so strongly. We believe that wheelchair repair is more than just a technical job, it’s also a job that requires kindness and courtesy at all times. You’ve got to be able to remain patient and calm, no matter what kind of mood the client is in when you arrive to repair their scooter.
Some things we require of our wheelchair repair techs are non-negotiable, first and foremost that they are respectful and dedicated to the well-being of our clients.
