When Robbie Lake was laid off from his long-term job at AGC, he took advantage of free workshops offered by ECTC to explore his options. He saw opportunities to get started on a new career.
Robbie attended Resume Writing and Interviewing Techniques workshops, as well as Computers for Beginners and Excel classes to learn vital computer skills.
Then he decided to enroll in ECTC credit classes, and began studying Industrial Electricity to prepare himself for a career working in a variety of industrial settings.
"I’ve never been laid off or had to rely on unemployment until now," Robbie said.
"ECTC was there for me…they had the answers I was looking for. The program I am enrolled in is allowing me to earn an education in something I’ve always wanted to do, with great prospects for a career."
"I’m thrilled that something that started as such a dark time in my life, has become an opportunity for a better life for my family and me. I couldn’t have done it without ECTC."
