Equity Residential offers a 14-week upskilling training program for individuals who want to learn property maintenance skills. The Maintenance Apprentice is introduced to Equity Residential techniques and concepts through on-the-job training and classroom courses. 

Daisy M. recently completed the program and now has a fulfilling career with Equity Residential. She joined the apprenticeship program with positive energy and eagerness to dive into the learning process. The program enabled her to learn technical skills quickly, such as performing air conditioning condensation lines and drywall repairs. She learned how to use our task management system that allows technicians to access and closeout repair tasks, order parts and add comments regarding the work done. Additionally, she honed invaluable customer satisfaction skills and is often praised for her interactions with our residents and high quality of work. Her dedication to the role she plays in our overall operational efforts will continue to cultivate her professional growth.
