Meet Ted

Workforce Challenge

Ted was laid off in 2009 from his position as an architect and project manager. Although he had years of experience, the companies that were hiring were looking for certification that he did not possess.

Workforce Solution

Ted found his way to the County of San Bernardino Workforce Investment Board. After discussing his predicament with a staff member, he was referred to the New Horizons Computer Learning Centers’ Project Management Professional Program. The Workforce Investment Board’s supportive services provided him with gas cards to offset transportation costs while he trained.

Outcomes & Benefits

After successfully completing his certification, Ted is now working for Architects Orange in project management, making more than $35 per hour as Senior Job Captain.
