Meet Daniel

Workforce Challenge

Daniel had been unemployed for over four months. He was laid off as a welder, and since he didn't have any welding certifications, he couldn't return to that occupation. Daniel had previously driven a truck for three years, but his CDLA license was expired. He just wasn't sure which direction to take. Daniel explained to me that due to physical limitations, he could no longer do the job of a welder. He decided he wanted to get another CDLA license and drive over-the-road.

Workforce Solution

He was approved for a WIOA scholarship to attend truck driving school for a driving refresher course. He passed the course easily and received a CDLA license within one month.

Outcomes & Benefits

Daniel is now driving large trucks over-the-road, and he loves it. He said he works for a great company with really good benefits. He has stopped in or called a few times to express his gratitude for our program and the assistance he received. His salary is as much as he made as a welder.
