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.

New 2020-21 training programs are planned for:

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

Information about these new training opportunities will be available soon on this page. Check back!

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 that have been offered this year 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.
