Meet Tyler

Workforce Challenge

Tyler was unemployed and looking for a career change from being an automotive technician to getting a career in the oil field. He knew the only way to achieve this goal was getting a commercial drivers license. He was looking into schools and quickly realized he could not afford to go.

Workforce Solution

Tyler went into the Colorado workforce center and asked if there was a way to receive any help. He filled out an application to verify that he was eligible. After waiting a few days, his application was accepted. With help from workforce center staff, he found CDL College in Commerce City and chose to take the CDL-A over-the-road course.

Outcomes & Benefits

Tyler was extremely happy to begin classes and found a job in the oil field after earning his commercial drivers license. Tyler said, "Cynthia had helped me through the entire process and answered any questions that I had. Before walking into the workforce center I was worried about achieving my goal. Now that I've passed and obtained my commercial drivers license I obtained a job in the oil field being a cement hand and operator of a bulk truck. Without my CDL I didn't stand a chance. I'm incredibly grateful for all the help I've received and it's changed my life for the better."
