Many NCOs and enlisted technicians transition into civilian careers as field service technicians. The duties of non-commissioned officers and enlisted technicians in the military are very similar to a field service technician in the civilian world. The main difference is the type of equipment that the technician is servicing/maintaining/repairing is for civilian purposes rather than war fighting/defense.
