On the Road to a New Career


Jonathon E. was working as a laborer for a few years, but after a while he felt like he wasn't going anywhere. After wanting to for quite a while, Jonathon decided to finally try and obtain his CDL. He found Road Warriors Truck Driving School after a bit of searching online and decided to contact them. While eager to begin his training, he was concerned about the tuition costs. Road Warriors suggested Jonathon contact Michigan Works for tuition assistance.


With the tuition assistance provided by Michigan Works, Jonathon was able to attend school and get his CDL-A without going into debt. After just three weeks of attending Road Warriors, Jonathon completed the state test and in just over a month he had received his Commercial Driving License, allowing him many more opportunities for work.


“It was a challenge to learn how to properly operate a commercial vehicle, but it was a challenge I gladly faced head-on and successfully overcame,” reports Jonathon. “I would recommend anyone looking to obtain a CDL who needs financial assistance to go through Michigan Works, as they have helped me accomplish my goal.”
