With waste and recycling collection services officially underway in the City of Pomona, Athens Services is thrilled to announce the launch of two on-the-job training opportunities for residents considering a career in heavy duty vehicle maintenance or commercial trucking.
Athens has partnered with Citrus College on a Heavy Truck Maintenance Certification Program and with Camino Real Career Schools on a Commercial Driver’s License (CDL) Graduate Program. These one-of-a-kind programs stem from our company ethos, The Athens Way, as well as our commitment to skills building as a way to enhance career opportunities.
“Athens is offering the maintenance apprenticeship and driver trainee program to provide individuals with the valuable chance to work within our organization while gaining practical, on-the-job training,” said Talent Acquisition & Retention Manager Jojo Delgado. “Our goal is to equip program participants with essential entry-level job skills and knowledge to help prepare them for potential full-time employment.”
The Citrus College Heavy Truck Maintenance Certification Program is a Career and Academic Pathways (CAPs) program designed exclusively for Athens. The apprenticeship consists of a three-course series at Citrus College that will provide learners with an understanding of basic shop maintenance and services. The program will also dive into specific heavy duty truck components including suspension, steering, brakes, and hydraulics.
