Over the past 3 years, Pierce Transit has developed a new series of maintenance training programs. This includes training people with some mechanical experience to be journey-level mechanics, allowing them to work at Pierce or nearly any other transit agency. Additionally, there are special certification trainings for forklift and electric bus maintenance, as well as practical exams for other certifications. Pierce has also introduced a Mech 1 training for those with less mechanical experience in order for them to begin their careers as mechanics.
