April 26, 2019 General

Congratulations to Bus Maintenance and the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Local (IBEW) Bus Maintenance Training Committee for getting certified by the US Department of Labor, Office of Apprenticeship for the Bus Mechanic Technician program.

SacRT Bus Mechanic Kris Arvizo recently graduated from the state apprenticeship program. He is the first SacRT employee to complete the program.  In 2016, SacRT in partnership with the IBEW 1245, received state certification for this program.

Bus Maintenance Superintendent Matt Mibach says that being enrolled in multiple apprenticeship programs gives SacRT a great chance at available training grants and funding through the state and federal programs.  “We are really proud of Kris, this is a great comprehensive training program and is a valuable resource for the District,” said Mibach.
