PC support specialists may read technical manuals to help determine the problem, test computers to make sure they work, and help determine a company’s computer needs. At larger companies, specialists may teach staff how to use new software. A PC support specialist who works with customers may teach customers how to install software or hardware or how to use the software purchased.
