Training Opportunities
Additional Training
The City of Flagstaff is committed to continuous learning. With this concept in mind, the City provides a program to assist employees with the financial aspects of continued education which:
  • Encourages education
  • Expands job knowledge and upgrades skills
  • Helps employees in completing college coursework
  • Prepares employees for other lines of work within the City

In addition to in-house training programs, the City offers training in the areas of professional development, safety, computer literacy, supervisory skills, and more.

Tuition Reimbursement Opportunities
All tenured and exempt employees are eligible for reimbursement. Part-time tenured employees working 20 hours per week or more will be eligible for reimbursement on a pre-rated basis. Reimbursement may be made for coursework taken through an accredited college or university after the employee has worked for the City for a period of one continuous year, provided the course is either related to the employee's current position (or any position in the City to which the employee could reasonably aspire) or a class necessary to obtain a degree related to the employee's current position (or any position with the department.)

Reimbursement is made at 100% (subject to the availability of funds) of eligible tuition fees up to 12 credit hours per calendar year provided the employee receives a grade of "B" or better in the class. Maximum reimbursements will be equivalent to current Northern Arizona University tuition rates. Employees also receive a stipend of $75 per class for each course they receive tuition reimbursement, to cover incidentals not covered by tuition. Lab fees will be reimbursed separately.

For more information about tuition reimbursement, see the Continuing Education and Tuition Reimbursement policy.
