By investing in partnerships with educators and businesses, we create short-term training and certification programs that are catered to Eastern Maine’s growing industries, including:
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.
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.
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.
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.
