Meet TImothy

Workforce Challenge

Timothy came into our office requesting assistance with Electronic Technician training.

At time of enrollment Timothy was recently separated veteran with a service-connected disability who hadn’t worked since his separation three years ago. He had an Associate’s degree in Advanced Electronics and was seeking assistance to obtain electronic assembly certifications as these will make him more marketable in the field.

Workforce Solution

Timothy enrolled in WIOA and received tuition assistance to pursue electronic assembly certifications.

Outcomes & Benefits

Timothy received electronic assembly certifications, which played a huge impact in his likelihood to get in with Lockheed, 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.

Timothy’s case exemplifies the impact WIOA can have in helping our veterans to enter or re-enter the civilian workforce.
