ARA talked to students about careers as rental industry service techs.

The American Rental Association (ARA) held an "ARARentalWorks" Day during its recent trade show in Orlando, Florida, to introduce hundreds of local trade and technical students to service technician careers in the rental industry.

During ARARentalWorks Day, students from Orlando’s Universal Technical Institute, Osceola Technical College and Orange Technical College heard from rental business owners and managers regarding the size and scope of the rental industry and specifics about service technician jobs.

The students also toured the floor of trade show to see the variety of equipment, from excavators to light towers, that they could work on.

Service technicians in the rental industry help customers with equipment maintenance and repair, selection, proper usage, loading and unloading, and cleaning returned equipment. The average national hourly wage for highly skilled service technicians in rental is $23.73 an hour, ARA says.

“ARA is dedicated to raising awareness of careers in rental to ensure a qualified and sustainable workforce for rental business owners,” said Tony Conant, ARA CEO. “ARARentalWorks Day was an exciting way to help Orlando students discover exciting, good-paying and rewarding opportunities down a non-traditional and lesser-known career path in the rental industry.”

The equipment and event rental industry is one of America’s fastest-growing business sectors and is expected to reach $65 billion in revenue by 2022.
