Meet Horacio

Workforce Challenge

Horacio was a laid off aircraft worker. He had been seeking employment without success. While job searching, he realized that employers were seeking individuals who had their A & P license. Horacio had previously obtained the Airframe certificate, but he did not have the Power Plant part of the license. He discussed his lack of training with the Department of Commerce and requested training assistance from the TAA program.

Workforce Solution

With his case manager, Horacio developed a training plan that would enable him to complete the Power Plant certificate. He was approved for training, but he continued to job search while in training because unemployment was not enough to cover his living expenses.

Outcomes & Benefits

Horacio obtained a job interview in California, and the TAA program was able to assist him with the out-of-the-area job search service. Following the interview Horacio, was offered employment. Again, he worked with his case manager, and through the TAA program, they were able to secure relocation assistance.
