Phong Lam

Phong Lam is an exciting example of what accomplishments are possible with excellent training and a determination to succeed. Prior to coming to Job Corps, Phong had been making a living delivering Pizza. Desiring a change and an opportunity, Phong entered Job Corps. He chose automotive as his trade of choice, and went on to complete the Basic Program. He knew at that time he needed further training and education so he selected UAW Advanced Automotive Training as his next training option.

Throughout his time in Job Corps, Phong showed great desire to learn as much as possible. During his time in the UAW Program, he won the respect of his instructors and from his peers. His strong work-ethic and desire for knowledge pushed him forward to greater accomplishments. His completions included: Automatic Transmission, Manual Transmissions, and Electrical Diagnosis. He also received ASE Certifications in all three subject areas. Phong also completed high School classes and received his High School Diploma.

After completing his training, Phong completed Work-Based-Learning at Freeway Transmissions in Salt Lake City, Utah. While there, Gary Carne, Service Director, offered Phong a full-time position as an R & R Technician. Today, Phong's salary exceeds $56,000 per year, plus bonuses and an extended medical and benefit plan.

When asked, Phong stated that he really enjoys work for Freeway transmissions because they are a great company that takes care of their employees. Phong currently lives in a home he recently purchased in West Valley City, Utah with his family and he drives a new Dodge Dakota pick-up truck. We are very proud of Phong's accomplishments and we look forward to further success in the future!
