A demolition expert is an individual who demolishes large structures such as tall buildings, factories and bridges by using explosives. Demolition experts may also be employed as consultants when dynamiting new sections of mineshafts. Besides explosives, the work of a demolition expert may also include handling wrecking balls, axes, crowbars, shovels and sledge hammer. The person who is going to be responsible for handling explosives must have proper training to handle such substances as they involve a significant level of life risk. Someone interested in demolition as a profession should consider taking science, math and electronics related courses in the high school and college.
