Meet Chet

Workforce Challenge

Chet came to the Workforce Center after being laid off from his job making $11.50 an hour. Chet did not have the required skilled credential required to qualify for positions in the aircraft industry.

Workforce Solution

Chet qualified for funding through WIA in the National Emergency Grant as well as the Dislocated Worker program. This funding was used to support Chet in going to school to obtain a skilled credential as an Airframe and Powerplant Mechanic at a local training provider.

Outcomes & Benefits

Chet has since completed training and obtained his skilled credential. He has been hired at a local aircraft manufacturer as an A&P Mechanic making over $4.00 more than he did when he was laid off at his previous employer.
