    I cant imagine any copier engineer earning 40-50k, at 50k I doubt even the service manager earns that much.

    The way this industry is going having excellent IT knowledge & software solution training (Papercut, Equitrack etc) is very valuable.

    Let us eat, drink, and be merry, because tomorrow we may die!

    Your doing well, I haven't got a pot to piss in or a window to throw it out of.

    When you think you have made a procedure idiot proof your company employs a better idiot.

    If you Google for a copier tech you will see anything from 18 to 28k. A lot of company's say upto 28k but they would never offer that (more in between the 2 values).

    If your past the 30k mark then you are in an enviable position!!

    Networking skills are advantageous but use of a 3m vacuum cleaner is essential

    You need to get your A+, Net+ and start working the IT side of this industry. IMHO within 10 years, an onsite visit from a tech with a screwdriver will be an uncommon site. Help desks will be walking through clearing paper jams, and if a part is broken, send out a new, customer installed unit. I believe 40-45K would be an attainable goal for a tech with IT skills within 4-5 years. maybe not mom and pops, but with the increased salary comes the numbers game...Emujo

    If you don't see your question answered in the forum, please don't think it's OK to PM me for a personal reply...I do not give out firmware and/or manuals.

    In that case I'm glad I'm going to be out of this game in 3 years 3 months and 18 days............but who's counting.

    At least 50% of IT is a solution looking for a problem.

    PDI+ helps too. But that's just for entry level positions if you chose to work for a mothership like I did. It's pretty easy, but it shows you're serious about getting those advanced badges.
