GRCC Workforce Training programs provide in-demand skills leading to rewarding careers. Each Wednesday we’ll meet students who are heading down an educational pathway and changing their lives by earning occupational certificates.
Stephan “Stevie” Paul, had an associate degree but was having trouble obtaining a job due to his lack of real-world, hands-on experience.
“At this point I needed to seek an education that would give me experience. I researched and toured several educational centers that offer hands-on training. All were well out of my price range as I am the sole income provider for my family. My wife provides care for our son and we have twin daughters who have major health issues. While on the GRCC website I found exactly what I was looking for.”
Paul is now graduate of the Computer Support Technician Job Training Program.
“I feel very blessed that I was able to participate in this program for it changed my life. The class truly was one of the best experiences of my life.”
Paul is currently a systems administrator at Flat River Group, which has been recognized by Inc. Magazine as one of the fastest growing companies in both 2016 and 2017.
“Not only was this program exactly what I was looking for, but it was more than I expected,” he said. “I realized I had neglected all that goes into ‘job training.’
