Workforce Challenge

When Frank Mims was laid off from his employer of over 20 years, he was in need of career opportunities that would provide stability, health insurance and the opportunity to earn a better quality of life for his family. He came to the Lexington OneStop for guidance to achieve his employment goals.

Workforce Solution

Mr. Mims was enrolled into the WIA program and with the assistance of his workforce consultant, selected training for a career in Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning/ Refrigeration (HVAC) Technology. With a strong outlook and high demand for skilled HVAC technicians, Mr. Mims enthusiastically jumped into this learning opportunity. The drive and dedication to his goal made Mr. Mims such an academic standout that one instructor offered the opportunity to work side-by-side with him at a local A/C, Heating and Refrigeration business while completing training. At the end of training, Mr. Mims had earned a new skill set and an overall GPA of 3.91.

Outcomes & Benefits

After completing the HVAC program Mr. Mims set out to achieve his goal of a new and prosperous career. He found himself with an offer from a South Carolina State agency, and quickly accepted. The position offered him an increased salary, health benefits and the opportunity to give his family the quality of life he envisioned. Congratulations, Frank!
