NEVER TOO LATE TO TRAIN

If you are unemployed or underemployed and can’t find a job using your current skills, you may be eligible for free training. Two training programs are available:

Are You a Member?

The purpose of the career centers is to connect workers with employers. Job seekers can access job and career search services by becoming members of the career center.

Become a Member

MassHire Cape and Islands career centers but to every career center in the State. Most of the basic Career and Job Search services are available to members at no charge.

Individual Skills Training

We pay up to $10,000 towards training eligible individuals whose skills are no longer in demand and who wish to enroll in a certificate program or earn an advanced license in order to find employment.

To be considered for free training, eligible individuals must prove:

  • Their skills are no longer in demand
  • Jobs are available in the career they wish to pursue

On the Job Training

Perfect for the person who needs to get a job as soon as possible.

Another training option would be to learn a skill right on the job. Eligible individuals who are interested in learning a skill on the job or know of an available job that they would like to apply for but lack one or two of the skills needed to get the job, should call Cathie LeBlanc (508) 862-6128, cleblanc@masshire-capeandislands.com, Cathie could approach the employer who has the available job, on behalf of the job seeker and inform the employer about our OJT program, with hopes the employer would agree to hire the candidate and train them on the job with the help of MassHire Cape and Islands Career Center.

Internships-Paid

For those who need experience in a chosen field before they can get a job in the profession for which they have been trained.
