No-cost, short-term training available now

We’re here for you.

MCCS is offering free online training programs that are tied to skills and jobs currently in demand in Maine.

See the list of offerings which include medical and IT training, behavioral health professional certification, and Microsoft office specialist.

Courses can be started online at any time, are self-paced, and typically take between 5 and 12 months to complete. Most allow you to earn industry-recognized credentials that signal to employers that you have the skills they need.

To learn more or to sign up for one of the offerings, contact the individuals listed here.

MCCS is grateful to Governor Mills and the Maine State Legislature for funding and supporting these important training opportunities, offered through Maine Quality Centers.


Additional free training opportunities coming soon!

A generous grant from the Harold Alfond Foundation is making it possible for Maine’s community colleges to offer free training in the following areas beginning in fall 2020. Each of these programs is currently scheduled to be delivered in person at one or more of the community colleges:

  • Phlebotomy
  • Industrial electrical repair
  • Facility maintenance technician
  • Software development
  • Heavy equipment operator

Plans for these programs are still in development, but more information is available here or by contacting Michelle Bladen.
