Ryan P. contacted Michigan Works! seeking help obtaining his Class A CDL. He had been working a seasonal position and after looking into different career paths he found that commercial driving would provide the best opportunities for himself and his family.
After Ryan completed filling out necessary paperwork, Michigan Works! was able to cover not only Ryan’s tuition expenses to attend Road Warrior Truck Driving School in Gaylord, but also covered his hotel stay while attending the school, since it was a 2 hour commute from his home. Ryan completed not only his CDL-A, but also his endorsements for hazmat and has accepted a position with American Gas products.
Ryan says, “I'm very thankful for the help and support I received from Michigan Works!, especially my Career Advisor Amanda Pauly! With the funding I was provided I was able to complete cdl school and obtain my class A cdl with no debt. I now have accepted my first cdl position and am looking forward to starting my new career! Thanks Michigan Works!”
