SW Colorado Workforce Center

Meet Barry

Workforce Challenge

Barry came to the Durango Workforce Center seeking financial assistance for training as a commercial driver (CDL) and a heavy equipment operator. He also was interested in obtaining his high school equivalency diploma, as not having graduated high school has hindered him from obtaining gainful employment.

Workforce Solution

The Workforce Center enrolled him in the dislocated worker program and sponsored Barry's training in all areas.

Outcomes & Benefits

Barry successfully completed his CDL & Heavy Equipment training and obtained his GED. He obtained full time employment with a local construction company as a Heavy Equipment Operator making good wages. He also was provided a company truck to drive and a company cell phone to use. Barry is grateful to the Workforce Center for their assistance and feels that he owes a great deal of his new-found success to them.
