FIELD SERVICES PROFESSIONAL CAREER PATH The City of Edmond is
dedicated to the support and development of Field Service
Professionals. Field Services combines the disciplines of Street,
Water and Wastewater Line Maintenance into a skilled and
cross-trained professional workforce. The program has three levels
of expertise consisting of Apprentice, Technician and Specialist.
Required training is provided through a specifically developed
Skill Based Pay Program (SBP). The curriculum and hands-on
applications consistently develop the skills, knowledge and
expertise necessary to complete each level. The ability to earn
higher pay is directly proportional to progressing through the
training and years of experience in the profession. Upon hiring, an
employee is enrolled as a Field Services Apprentice in the SBP
program AND the United States Department of Labor Apprenticeship
Program for Field Services Professionals. An Apprentice is on
probation for a full year; evaluations of performance are completed
at six months on the job and at the end of the probation period.
With positive evaluations and progression through the required
training, employees are eligible for salary increases. After the
probationary year, evaluations are completed annually. Entry level
pay is currently at $14.42/hr. Upon certification in all Apprentice
Level skills, and one year of service, the employee will be
reclassified as a Technician I, and will be placed in a higher
salary grade. This progression continues with completed training
and years of service to advance to the higher levels in the
program. Additional pay may be earned by obtaining identified job
related certifications, as approved and coordinated thru Field
Services Superintendent or his designee. After completion of the
Technician I level, a National Certification is presented by the US
Department of Labor (DOL) in recognition of Professional
accomplishment. To date, we are the only municipality that has the
ability to provide our employees with this distinguished DOL
Journeyman Certification. This proven model produces a highly
skilled and cross-trained workforce capable of responding to any
project, crisis or emergency with the knowledge, expertise, skills
and confidence to resolve, control and remediate the situation.
Understanding the requirements and commitment necessary to become a
Field Services Professional is a journey rewarded with successes
and Pride of Accomplishment as a result of what has been earned
both individually and collectively as a Team serving our customers.
