Last summer, Carole Vernon participated in the special guest room attendant (GRA) training project for CityCenter that Nevada Partners offered in partnership with the Culinary Training Academy. A homemaker since working as a GRA for Circus Circus in 1976, Vernon needed to refresh her skills and gain confidence. The intensive training brought her up to speed on the latest cleaning methods, chemicals, and customer service standards. "The training let me know that I could get back into the workplace," she said. Vernon was hired at Aria as a fulltime GRA at $14.20 an hour.
When Gary Chapman, a Vietnam vet, came to Nevada Partners he had been out of work for two months. He had a job offer, but the position required a commercial driver's license (CDL), and he couldn't afford the expensive training. Our case manager collaborated with Nevada JobConnect to arrange funding for Chapman to attend a Class B CDL program. After getting his license, Chapman was hired by a logistics service provider as a fulltime fuels technician at an area air force base for more than $21 an hour. "If it wasn't for Nevada Partners, I would not have been able to get my license," Chapman said. "The staff were helpful and moved quickly to get me back on the right path."
