Each of the armed services provides world-class technical training to ensure that military personnel are up to any challenge. SRP’s military skills translator helps veterans understand how their military experience aligns with different positions at SRP. This translator doesn’t cover every position at SRP, but it does include the positions we most often hire for, positions that are hard to fill and hourly workforce occupations at SRP.
There are currently no positions at SRP that require security clearance. However, SRP values technical training and will consider all qualifications in evaluating candidate readiness for positions at SRP.
SRP sponsors two registered apprenticeship programs. The first, the Joint Apprenticeship Corporate Committee (JACC), is co-managed by the IBEW Local 266. It includes the trades of auto mechanic, cable splicer, construction and maintenance man, lineman, machinist, metal fabricator, meterman, plant electrician, plant mechanic and substation electrician. The Relay Apprenticeship & Training Committee (ATC) manages SRP's salaried Relay Technician apprenticeship program.
Candidates for the JACC program must be current SRP employees to qualify for one of these apprenticeships. The ATC program accepts both internal and external bidders. All trades require educational prerequisites, and interested candidates should contact the Apprenticeship Office for more information.
The advertisement period lasts from mid-January to the end of February each year. During that time, the Apprenticeship Team conducts informational meetings and packet review clinics. The application period opens for 10 days at the beginning of March, and the behavioral interviews start the first week of April. Trade orientations take place the second week of April. These are followed by technical interviews and final selections. Indenture is on the first pay period in May.
Consideration may be given to military qualifications presented on Joint Services Transcripts. SRP is a certified military educational institution, and Joint Services Transcripts may be sent directly to the Salt River Project Apprenticeship Program. Non-apprenticeship submissions will be forwarded to Talent Acquisition. SRP accepts the American Council for Education (ACE) recommendations for college credits presented on the Joint Services Transcripts.
