    That is not correct. The weakness is the expression "standards to what should be for a computer technician". It is understandable so it is not terrible but it is not right.

    There are several ways to reword this sentence to make it more natural. Here are some examples:

    "His skills were not up to the standards expected of a computer technician, so he was dismissed."

    "His skills were not up to the standards required to be a computer technician, so he was dismissed."

    "His skills were not up to the required standards for a computer technician, so he was dismissed."

    No, it's not correct.

    It should be - "His skills were not up to the standards required for a computer technician so he was dismissed."
