PC Support Technicians are the repairmen of the IT industry who fix the malfunctions of basic hardware and software of faulty computer systems.  In an organisation they generally offer support to End-user Technicians and assist them with the diagnosis and resolution of problems, such as virus removal and troubleshooting duties.  Other basic responsibilities include installation, maintenance and the repairing of computer systems and equipment so that employees are able to use their workstations without any issues.
To become an IT support technician, you must have a wide knowledge of operating systems and be able to explain problems and solutions clearly to non-technical users.
