The Marine Advanced Technology Education Center (MATE) has provided this overview of the tasks of hydrographic survey technicians to serve as guidelines to current and future job seekers. This document covers all aspects of a successful hydrographic survey technician including common personality traits, a list of courses/subjects in which a hydrographic survey technician should have experience, as well as tools and equipment that one would use. In addition to these basic generalities, the document breaks down hydrographic survey technician responsibilities into “six general job functions.” Within these categories “Technical Knowledge and Skill” and “Performance Indicators” are identified. Having these identified help technicians gage what knowledge they will need prior to beginning a task and when a task has been successfully completed. This document is a great resource for current or future hydrographic survey technicians in order to understand what is expected of them on the job.
