Meet Joey

Workforce Challenge

Veteran Joey could not find work as an electrician or in the construction field. He lacked required certifications and with limited funds, he was unable to pay for training.

Workforce Solution

Through a referral from the Economic Development Department's veteran representative, Joey was put in contact with the Workforce Investment Board, where he received tuition and transportation assistance. As a result of this opportunity, he acquired Renewable Energy and Communication Tower Technician Certification, as well as OSHA certifications.

Outcomes & Benefits

With new certifications, Joey obtained a full-time job with Johnson-Peltier as an electrician. He says, "The services the Victorville office provided me were truly unforgettable. Allowing me to participate in a skills based training course was quite an accomplishment. I couldn't have done this on my own."
