Each of the armed services provide world-class technical training to ensure that military personnel are up to any challenge. Accompanying this website is a military skills translator specific to SRP. This translator will help veterans understand how their military occupation aligns with different positions at SRP. This translator is not intended to be all encompassing, rather we've populated it with positions SRP hires for most frequently, hard to fill positions and hourly workforce occupations at SRP.
There are currently no positions at SRP that require security clearance. However, SRP values the technical training received 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 & 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 Joint Apprenticeship Corporate Committee program must be current SRP employees to qualify for one of their apprenticeships. The Relay Apprenticeship & Training Committee 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 information meetings and packet review clinics. The application period opens for 10 days in 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.

Your leave benefits begin on the effective date for active duty. This date must be documented by orders that the employee supplies to SRP.
