Successful candidates must be ready to train non-technical people about their craft, assemble parts for lock mechanisms while on the move, and travel around the world. These technical operations officers, according to CIA, are going to perform missions to serve their country.

Knowing how to operate machinery to fabricate lock parts and tools will be beneficial."
