Electrical/Instrumentation Technician I is the entry-level class in the Electrical/Instrumentation Technician series. Initially under direct supervision, incumbents learn and perform a variety of skilled, journey-level duties in the design, construction, installation, testing, calibration, maintenance and repair of electronic systems and industrial electrical equipment such as metering, display, and data recording instrumentation; process controllers; programmable logic controllers; radio, telephone and fiber optic voice and data communication systems; medium and low voltage electrical and electronic circuits, motors, generators and transformers; electrical metering equipment; valve and pump motor controls; supervisory control systems, water quality instrumentation equipment; and other equipment, devices, systems and machinery used in a large, state-of-the-art aqueduct pipeline system. Incumbents are expected to work independently, performing journey-level duties in one of the classification's primary duty categories (industrial electrical construction, maintenance and repair; instrumentation; communications; electronic systems installation, maintenance and repair), and learn and perform the remaining class duty categories under the direction of the supervisor and other technicians.
Electrical/Instrumentation Technician II is the journey-level class in the Electrical/Instrumentation Technician series. Under general supervision, incumbents perform the full range of assigned duties in all of the primary duty categories. This class differs from the lower-level class in the skill level required and the complexity of assigned projects based on knowledge of the Water Authority's equipment, systems, standards and procedures. This class is distinguished from the Senior Electrical/Instrumentation Technician in that the latter is the advanced journey-level class in the series responsible for performing the more difficult and complex assignments in the section's primary duty categories as well as responsibility for training other section personnel. Assignments vary, encompass a variety of tasks, seldom require detailed instructions, and require sound judgment and initiative.
The qualification guidelines generally describe the knowledge and ability required to enter the job in order to successfully perform the assigned duties. Any combination of experience and training that would provide the required knowledge, skills and abilities will be considered. A typical example of qualifying education and experience would be:
Electrical/Instrumentation Technician I: Equivalent to the completion of the twelfth grade supplemented by two years of journey-level experience in the design, installation, maintenance and repair of complex electrical and electronic equipment and devices common to a large water works.
Electrical/Instrumentation Technician II: Equivalent to the completion of the twelfth grade supplemented by one year of experience equivalent to the Electrical/Instrumentation Technician I position.
