Three Valleys has an opening for a Water Apprentice.
A high school diploma supplemented by applicable, specialized training is preferred. Prospective skilled workers usually like to work with their hands, solve practical problems and use various tools to build and repair things. They like to finish things they've started and don't care how dirty or greasy the job is, as long as they get it done.
Those that have taken water treatment/distribution courses, have some basic knowledge of mechanical, electrical and transmission systems, chemistry, biology, mathematics, record-keeping and reporting techniques, etc. Physical fitness, a good sense of balance, eye-hand coordination, color sense, agility, strength, ability to lift up to 55 pounds and work at heights all with a mechanical aptitude are desirable qualifications. Some level of interest and experience in Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) analysis is a plus. Ability to work with others, a good personality and neat appearance are necessary as there is occasional contact with the public.
This is an unpaid position and is meant to provide training and hands on experience.
