Navigators look out for their members

“My Training Fund Navigator was really great at counseling me. He walked me through the whole process….applying to the Training Fund, qualifying for Tuition Assistance, and then sending me resources for scholarships to keep my costs as minimal as possible. When I was unsure about things, he would reach out on my behalf to help me navigate. He definitely went above and beyond!”

Take a chance - go back to school!

“I was really nervous to go back to school because I had been out of school for 13 years. But it’s such a great benefit to take advantage of. Going back to school was a challenge but I think when it challenges you it really makes you stronger, and I just feel like it makes me have more of an edge in my field”

"Tuition assistance meant following my dream career"

“I wanted to be a nurse since I was 10-years-old. I started working as a patient transporter in 2016 and I didn’t know we had a union or an education fund. I became more serious about my nursing career. [The Training Fund] is awesome, it’s great! It takes a load off of you financially and you can focus on your school without worrying about how to pay for it.”

Aimee Duenas, MultiCare Auburn Medical Center Nursing Assistant
Aimee completed her nursing pre-requisites and began the Highline College nursing program in September 2020.

School is not easy, but it's not impossible with the Training Fund

“Going back to school for a Master’s program after 30 years, in a different learning environment, with a full-time O.R. nurse job, and the pandemic is not easy, but not impossible to do. I was amazed by the tremendous support I had from the Training Fund and WGU mentors. Now I can say I will never regret taking the high road in meeting my personal and professional development. The next step for me is to plan on giving back.”
