Mid Michigan College Offers New Short Term Training Opportunities

Mid Michigan College has several new short-term training opportunities.

Short-term training provides people with career-ready skills in the healthcare and skilled trades fields. Those include health care, truck driving, dental assistance, welding and more.

Programs range from three to twelve weeks and by the end trainees will be ready for state certification exams.

Scott Govitz, associate vice president of workforce & economic development at Mid Michigan College, says, “There’s ample opportunity for jobs out there. Employers are desperate for individuals right now, particularly individuals who are trained in the field and ready to hit the ground running.”

Michigan Works! is also offering tuition assistance for the training. Potential trainees should contact their local Michigan Works! to see if they qualify.
