My name is Michael. I was convicted of assault about 12yrs ago. I have struggled finding decent paying jobs. Most employers especially out here in Arizona will not give me a chance. I may have an opportunity to go back to school through a veterans program called VRAP. They pay for you to go to school for a year and give around $1400.00 a month.
My question is this I was thinking about going for a respiratory tech or x ray tech position but I doubt I can get licensed here in AZ. What other careers which require licensing can I do if any and also are they any agencies out in Phoenix that can help me. Thank you for any help you can provide.

If I were you, I would contact the Arizona Medical Board to see if you can be licensed.

I encourage every ex-offender and felon I meet, to apply for every job they feel they they are qualified for. Whichever jobs you apply for, find out what are the requirements. Do not assume because you are a felon, that you are not eligible.
