The main Area of works are Factory part and Executing part. Executing part will be explained briefly in this post.
In this industry most matters is your experience, than your qualification. But when you start in a company it matters. Till a certain level experience is the main thing, but beyond that stuff turns over.

so i can explain you these five areas as well as i know.
1. Sales Person
As you obviously know sales person will be selling the product to the potential customers. The main thing all the companies will look consciously is the EXPERIENCE. Most cases the Qualification for these jobs will be MBA. Some places they will look or a Degree. But in good companies the want B tech/M tech/BE.
Your knowledge about the current market is very important. If you are a fresher then just go join Local companies for the experience purpose. Most of the good companies seek for 3 - 4 year experienced personals.
As you know the pressure on a sales person will be huge in an emerging market. But if your company is well established then may be a little free air is there for you. More about the sales category will be published soon.
2. Installation Technician
The main work , the physical work happening in the job flow is handled by this category. Normally the qualification will be ITI or any other technical qualification. There are also some short term courses in this subject. But these are turned out to be useless.
The main thing is experience. You should know the work to get the job. The experience can be earned by working with subcontractors. To work with good companies you need minimum ITI qualification or very good experience and recommendation. After material delivered to the site when site is ready the installation teams work starts. More about the work will be posted separately and the link is here
3. Service Technician
Service technician is for the existing installation. Their work starts by taking over a installation from the installation department. The maintenance team should check and confirm all the checklist points and take over the site to service departments. The main responsibilities are
1. Call backs ( Lift break downs or complaints )
2. Scheduled service (Monthly or in Fixed intervals )
3. System improvements
5. house keeping
Some companies will have a separate team for each of these things. That will be according to the company's business volume. Normally ITI qualification is enough. The qualification is according to the work and stages. For example... for minor break downs a technician with a sufficient knowledge is enough but in case of a major breakdown, more skilled man power is needed. More about it is here
4. Installation/ Service Engineers
These people will be doing the planning and all over looking. They act like a connection chain between who works in the site and who works in the office. so they should have good technical knowledge and the office things. Most of the companies will choose experienced persons with technical degree qualification. Also Diploma qualification can achieve this position by experience. More of this category is here.
5. Project Managers
They will be recruited to the company when the sales team brings huge project in to the account. That thing can not be handled by engineers alone. Most of the project managers are Experienced engineers or they would have specialized in project management in their studies. More about them is here
