With rapid advancements in technology, technician training has also become a major factor in improving productivity. The skill sets necessary to maintain a vast array of building equipment requires technical training. To meet these needs Operations and Maintenance is partnering with Maricopa Community Colleges to develop a Facilities Technology certification and degree program for our technicians. The Division also offers weekly basic maintenance training by our own instructors. The program is proving to be very successful and is dramatically increasing our technician’s knowledge and skill levels in the latest technology advancements.
