On-Site Classes

Did you know we can bring credit classes to your business? With a minimum of 10 employees, an on-site credit class can be delivered at your facility, either during or after business hours. With today’s fast pace and long work hours, often scheduling time to drive to a college campus proves to be a barrier to educational opportunities for working adults. Work with our Training Coordinators in collaboration with SMCC’s academic programs to bring SMCC directly to your employees.

Recent companies that have benefited from on-site credit classes include:

  • Barber Foods
  • Bath Iron Works
  • Brunswick Naval Air Station
  • Disability RMS
  • Goodwill Workforce Solutions
  • HP Hood
  • Long Creek Youth Development Center
  • Maine Medical Center
  • Plum Choice
  • WEX

Needs Assessment

Our Training Coordinators can help you meet the training needs of your current and future workforce through our customized training programs. Through a needs assessment, we can design, deliver and customize interactive training programs to meet your workforce needs and help your company stay competitive. As global competition accelerates, a well-trained and educated workforce is essential to your company’s success. Contact us to learn more!
