Meet Pearce

Workforce Challenge

Pearce worked as an EMT. The hospital he worked for told him that he could not get an increase in pay until he became a paramedic. He could not afford to pay the full amount of tuition to become a paramedic. When Pearce heard about our worlforce center, he applied for a WIOA scholarship to help pay for his paramedic training.

Workforce Solution

Pearce was approved for a WIOA scholarship, which covered most of the tuition for his paramedic training.

Outcomes & Benefits

Pearce completed his training, obtained his paramedic license, and is now making 50% more than he previously did. He also has the potential to increase his wages in the future.
