Information
1. REQUESTED BOARD ACTION:
Public Works: Presentation on the Automotive Service Excellence Certification Incentive.
2. SUMMARY:
Employee development is a strategic goal of the Department of Public Works (Department) with an emphasis on continuing education and increasing the knowledge base and skill set within the Department.  Additionally, the Department recognizes that employees who obtain certifications from accredited bodies demonstrates their mastery of certain skills and enhances the credibility and prestige of the Department.

With input from Human Resources, the Department has drafted the attached incentive program to recognize and reward Fleet Services Division staff for obtaining and maintaining Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) certifications.  ASE certifications are nationally recognized endorsements of a technician's training, experience and knowledge in the automotive service industry.  Having ASE certified technicians on staff will help ensure the competency and skills of technicians as well as make sure they keep pace with industry changes.  Ultimately, ASE certification provides our internal customers peace of mind that repairs are being performed by a qualified technician.  Also, the attached incentive program will help the Department in recruiting and retaining skilled technicians and make us competitive with similar programs offered by the City of Yuma and the Arizona Department of Transportation.
