Luis had 30 years of experience in Information Technology until he was laid off from Harris Information Services in September 2014. He struggled to find employment and suspected his lack of certification and advanced training was the cause.

The WDB provided funding for Luis to receive training for Information Tech Systems Engineer – MSCE. The program he enrolled in prepares students to enter the IT field as Network Administrators, Network Engineers and/or Computer Systems Analysts. Luis also received job search assistance, supportive services, and help with writing his resume.

Luis continues to attend the Computer Training Academy and is excelling in his courses. Over the past year he conducted several job interviews and was offered employment with TechWise as an IT Technician earning $25.70 per hour.
