Meet Nicolas

Workforce Challenge

As an aircraft worker, Nicolas had been laid off a few years ago. He was seeking employment, but he was unable to find a position. Nicolas visited the Workforce Center and was referred to the TAA program. One of the case managers assessed his skills and determined that he should be trained.

Workforce Solution

With the case manager, Nicolas researched different training options. He decided to attend HVAC training. His training was approved and he started school. After completing HVAC training, the case manager assisted Nicholas with updating his resume and posting it on Kansasworks.

Outcomes & Benefits

While he applied to positions, Nicolas obtained several jobs with temp agencies. Not long after, Nicolas obtained employment in the HVAC field. The TAA program was also able to assist Nicolas with the wage subsidy service, and he will be earning 83% more an hour than he would have without the subsidy.
