The competition tasks of this skill category are based
on the Vocational qualification in information and telecommunications
technology. The qualification titles are elektroniikka-asentaja (electronics
assembler) and ICT-asentaja (ICT technician).
The professionals who have completed this
qualification work according to the competence area for example in installation
and commission of computer hardware and telecommunications devices as well as
testing, repair and commissioning tasks associated with electronics production
or installation, maintenance and customer service work.
Description of the skill category
The robotics is one application area of electronics. The robotics is a fast-developing
sector of the future with many promises. The robotics is already an important
part of the industry and many other fields. Applications of the robotics are widely
used by the manufacturing industry, agriculture, traffic, mines and health
care. The robotics has also separate application areas: security sector, armed
forces and aerospace. Robots will go there where a human cannot be sent. Robots
will save people from rubble and travel to other planets.
A robot is an electronic system with a microprocessor which controls electronics
to communicate with environment. A robot is capable of sensing its environment
with different sensors and moving by means of actuating devices. The behaviour
of the robot is determined by the programming, embedded in the robot. The
microprocessor follows commands from its program memory in all actioning. These
commands are called a program code.
An electronics assembler who have completed the vocational qualification in information and telecommunications
technology is able to carry out installation, maintenance and customer service
work related to various electronics industry applications. Key competence areas
are installation of embedded systems and maintenance work. More precious
competence requirements for the Taitaja competition can be found in the
