LEWISTON — A number of organizations are collaborating on training opportunities that will provide classroom time as well as work experience or on the job training.

Candidates are low income, veterans or new Mainers and are encouraged to apply for the trainings that will result in the skills necessary to be successful in the workforce and related trades.

Programs for certified nursing assistant, construction, personal support specialist, certified residential medication aide, and office skills are scheduled to start in January. Some programs are geared toward a Work Readiness credential and others will include on-the-job training.

Orientations will be offered throughout January at the CareerCenter, 5 Mollison Way.

Registrations are requested by Friday, Dec. 30, for the CNA and construction programs.

Among the organizations are Adult Education, Western Maine Community Action, the Lewiston CareerCenter, the city of Lewiston, Community Concepts and the John T. Gorman Foundation. Additional initiative partners include Tree Street Youth, the Root Cellar and Maine Immigrant and Refugee Services.
