Workforce Challenge

A One-Stop customer in Davis County, Utah, was laid off from his job due to a reduction in the workforce. He identified a new position, but was told he needed to renew his certification in order to be employable. Although he'd held the certification before, he could not afford to re-take the exam. Feeling frustrated, he visited the Davis County One-Stop location.

Workforce Solution

The customer had a pre-hire letter, which stated that he would receive a job once he renewed he certification. This expedited approval to receive WIA Dislocated Worker funds to pay for the testing.

Outcomes & Benefits

After taking the exam, the customer was hired on as a construction and building inspector and began working full-time immediately. He was grateful for how efficiently he was helped by receiving Workforce Services and Workforce Investment Act funds, and said he was excited to get back to work!
