Workforce Training

Training sessionWCCC can provide no cost and low cost training to companies who plan on expanding and hiring new employees in Washington County. WCCC can design a training package for a specific company with as few as eight new employees. The package may include screening and testing of applicants through Maine Quality Centers. Ask us about MQC training.

For companies who plan to do training to upgrade their current workforce, WCCC can provide training when funding is secured through the Governor’s Training Initiative. Please contact WCCC’s Division of Community Education and Industry Services for more information on either of these programs. WCCC is committed to providing opportunity for economic growth in Washington County.
