Meet Ricardo

Workforce Challenge

Ricardo was laid off from his job of 18 years in the film processing industry. The move to digital film production meant that DeLuxe Laboratories was closing its doors in May 2014. Ricardo was married with three teenage children and had many financial responsibilities as the sole earner for the family.

Workforce Solution

Ricardo enrolled at the Metro North WorkSource Center, where he appreciated the way that the staff was engaged in trying to help him identify his next career move. After research, he decided to pursue training as an HVAC technician at the East San Gabriel Valley Regional Occupational Program (ESVROP). This training would teach him to diagnose, service, install, and repair domestic refrigeration and heating or air conditioning equipment.

Outcomes & Benefits

Ricardo has completed training and is now searching for a position as an HVAC Assistant. He is happy about his prospects and his new career path.
