Meet Kaitlyn who is getting a fresh start at a Maine community college.
No-cost, short-term training available now
Make sure your skills match up with what employers want – sign up for one of our many workforce training programs!
MCCS offers a range of free online training programs that are directly tied to skills and jobs currently in demand in Maine.
Many 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.
More training programs offered at each college!
There are additional low- or no-cost short-term workforce training programs available at each college, from professional development to courses such as commercial driver’s license, medical assisting, manufacturing technician training and more: CMCC, EMCC, KVCC, NMCC, SMCC, WCCC, and YCCC.
New programs available this year!
Thanks to a generous grant from the Harold Alfond Foundation, Maine’s community colleges are offering free training in the following areas:
- Industrial electrical repair
- Facility maintenance technician
- Software development
- Heavy equipment operator
If you complete an Alfond training program, you’re eligible for a scholarship that pays for two for-credit courses at a Maine community college! More information about these scholarships and how training graduates can use them is available here.
