The Fleet Technician Apprenticeship program is a two-year program and was developed to attract and train individuals with the desire to become a skilled fleet technician with the City of Phoenix, underfilling our Equipment Service Worker II role.

Apprentices perform a variety of semi-skilled tasks in maintaining and repairing a wide variety of on and off-highway equipment for the City of Phoenix. Assignments are routine at the beginning of the program. As an apprentice's knowledge and skill increases, the complexity of assignments increases until performance and technical ability are at the journey level. Participation in the program requires apprentices to attend courses provided by partnering educational institutions. Coursework is subject to a curriculum schedule and may require the incumbent to attend day or evening classes. Additionally, the incumbent may change work schedules (I.e., day, evening and night shifts) to accommodate coursework and job training that must be completed within the program guidelines. No experience is required prior to starting the program. All required training is paid for and provided by the City of Phoenix while on-the-job and being employed full-time.​
