Meet Reginald

Workforce Challenge

Reginald Smith was working in Network Support when he was laid off in October, 2010. In order to find a new job, he needed certification as Network Programmer.

Workforce Solution

Mr. Smith obtained funding through WIA to attend Premier Systems Training (PST) in the Computer Technology Industry Association A+ and Network+ certification program. WIA paid the entire cost of his tuition, as PST is not eligible for Federal financial aid. He also received funds to help cover the cost of basic supplies.

Outcomes & Benefits

Mr. Smith completed his program and passed his certification exam in January, 2011. By the end of the month, he had received an offer letter for a Desktop Support position at Gulfstream Aerospace. His thoughts on the program? "The WIA funding has given me a smooth transition getting back into employment within a short period of time."
