Alfond Grant opens door to free training

Thanks to a generous grant from the Harold Alfond Foundation,  free short-term workforce training programs are underway this year in such high-demand fields as welding, medical assisting, and IT.

Training programs include:

  • phlebotomy
  • industrial electrical repair
  • facility maintenance technician
  • software developers
  • heavy equipment operators

See a complete list of programs here.

Those who complete the Alfond training programs are eligible to take up to two free credit courses at a Maine community college. More information about these scholarships and how training graduates can use them is available here.

Read more about the Alfond training programs in this Bangor Daily News article.

The Alfond grant supports and complements our existing short-term workforce training offerings and longer term certificate and degree programs.
