Meet Leroy

Workforce Challenge

Leroy came in to the WFC searching for help with finding a job. He had been laid-off from his job as a security alarm installer. Leroy was distraught wanting to find a job where he could have a career. Leroy reported that he was interested in earning his CDLA because he enjoys driving. The WFC guided him to the WIOA program, where he could earn a grant for tuition.

Workforce Solution

I met with Leroy to assess his vocational goals. Leroy expressed his desire to earn his CDLA. I talked with Leroy to help him understand the trucker lifestyle so that he was aware of the requirements of the profession. Leroy reported that he was looking for more local work, but understood that he might need to go over the road before getting a local position. He didn't mind. WIOA was able to offer Leroy a grant for his tuition to help him earn his CDLA and help him to enter into his new career.

Outcomes & Benefits

After four weeks of training, Leroy passed his CDLA test and earned his CDLA. Leroy found a local job as a truck driver with waste management and enjoys his job very much.
