Meet Lawrence

Workforce Challenge

As a veteran disabled in the line of duty, Lawrence had been employed for a number of years as an apartment maintenance technician. When the apartment complex changed ownership, Lawrence was laid off. The barrier Lawrence faced was lack of training and experience in HVAC.

Workforce Solution

Workforce Boulder County's Workforce Investment Act Specialists, Tricia and Jim, co-enrolled Lawrence in the VWIP and WIA programs so that he could attend an HVAC course at Red Rocks Community College.

Outcomes & Benefits

Lawrence networked with Denver Transit Operators, a private company that will operate and maintain the new rail system being installed in the Denver Metro area. On March 23, 2015, Lawrence began full-time employment with Denver Transit Operators. He says that the HVAC course he completed was instrumental in his getting hired, and that he is being encouraged by his employer to continue classes at Red Rocks. Way to go Lawrence!
