Installation technicians are required to manage a number of tasks in both residential and commercial settings. This may include performing pre-wiring duties, installing security systems, telephones, cable television and intercom systems. They are also expected to diagnose problems such as equipment malfunctions and take measures to repair them.

When applying for an installation technician’s job at the entry level, one must provide ample information in the cover letter that will interest an employer to hire someone who has limited or no experience. This may include highlighting the ability to understand wiring requirements and carrying out duties such as setting up and maintaining equipment.

Dear Mr. Hall:

I recently completed an apprenticeship under the mentorship of Mr. Hedrick Mason at Convertible Installations. I am now interested in a full time position as an installation technician with Scientific Research Corporation as I hear that the company is looking for trained personnel in this capacity.

During the course of my apprenticeship, I developed acute knowledge of the installation service industry. With an intense grasp on performing installation of burglar alarms, emergency signaling systems, cable television and telecommunication equipment, I am sure that my candidacy for this position is quite strong. I also have a complete understanding of proper techniques that need to be carried out for installing security and cable systems. In addition, I was provided with some understanding of construction methods which I believe will prove to be beneficial in carrying out installation services. As part of the apprenticeship program, I was required to take an exam to test my ability to make connections, adjustments and also carry out diagnostic measures which I aced perfectly.

The prospect of acquiring this job at Scientific Research Corporation thrills me immensely as I am very enthusiastic to put my skills for the growth of your company. I’d like meeting with you to provide further insight into expertise.

Thank you for your time and consideration.
