Frank says he has been a roofer on and off for most of his life with no education or training in any other field. Explaining his situation, “I’m getting older and roofing was getting harder for me to do. I was laid off and felt like I was stuck as a roofer. With the help from Michigan Works! I was able to get the training I needed to get out of roofing and into employment which I could continue until retirement and take care of my family without tearing up my body doing so. I was able to get the schooling I needed to pass all my tests to obtain my CDL-A license. I was also able to secure a new employment occupation driving a truck and trail-er with heavy equipment.” Frank received 100% tuition assistance to attend truck driver training at Dedicated Driving School with funding from the Industry Infinity grant. He is currently earing $25 hourly with the new credential.
