Training & Certifications

  • Construction/Boat Building
  • Hospitality/Tourism
  • Healthcare
  • Information Technology
  • Manufacturing

Training

Work Experience

We empower employers by giving them the tools to offer paid mentorships. This short-term paid experience is a fit for people who are looking to grow basic workplace skills and build their resume. EMDC pays the full wage of each experience, and provides one-on-one career counseling before, during, and after the mentorship.

On-the-Job Training

This hire-first program encourages employers to invest in employees who need additional training before taking on the full responsibilities of the job. EMDC will offset a portion of each employee’s salary for a short-term period of time while they learn the skills they need to prosper in the entry-level position.

HS Diploma or HiSet Assistance

We connect people with adult education providers to help them achieve their High School Diploma or HiSet. EMDC staff provide one-on-one assistance and support throughout the process.

Certifications

We partner with educational institutions and businesses to create customized training and certification classes. By working with these partners we target Maine’s growing industries, in turn giving people the tools they need to fill workforce needs right here in our communities. Our certifications range from Fine Wood Working to Certified Nursing Assistants.

The healthcare training I received through EMDC has been a life-altering event, which I will never forget. The education and support from the Career Counselors led to my dream job as a frontline secretary in a healthcare environment.
