Adams County Workforce and Business Center

Meet Andrew

Workforce Challenge

At time of enrollment, Andrew was a recently separated Veteran with a service-connected disability. He had worked low-paying jobs since his separation. Andrew had background in aviation electronics from the marine corp, and he wanted to start a career in this field as it would not interfere with his disability limitations.

Workforce Solution

Andrew received WIOA assistance with tuition to pursue electronic assembly certifications.

Outcomes & Benefits

Andrew received electronic assembly certifications which played a huge impact in his likelihood to find a job with Lockheed Martin Space Systems Company, a major employer in his field of interest. He got hired with Lockheed immediately after training, earning a sustainable wage that allowed him to support his family.

Andrew's case exemplifies the impact WIOA can have in helping our Veterans to enter or re-enter the civilian workforce.
