As experience is gained, there is more diversity in assignments and greater independence of action within established guidelines. This class is alternately staffed with Planning Technician II, and incumbents may advance to the higher level after gaining experience and demonstrating the proficiency required in order to meet the qualifications of the higher level class.

Planning Technician II is the experienced level of this series, fully competent to perform a variety of technical planning, public service and office administrative duties. Assignments are characterized by the presence of fairly clear guidelines from which to make decisions and the availability of supervision in unusual circumstances.
