Resources for trainees

Who can participate in free trainings?

Anyone who lives or works in Arenac, Bay, Clare, Gladwin, Gratiot, Isabella, Midland, or Saginaw County. In some instances, your employer may arrange a training series for you and a team of other employees. But, that's not required! Whether you're looking to reskill, upskill, or gain additional skills, you are encouraged to sign up for trainings. As long as you verify residency in the counties listed above, you will receive free trainings and materials to gain industry and/or college credentials for whatever courses you select.

How many trainings can I enroll in?

Participants can enroll in a maximum of 40 training hours.

How do I apply?

Because these free trainings are being offered through State and Federal programs, you will need to provide verification documents and other pieces of information during your application process. You can complete the entire application online. 

Before you begin the online application, make sure you have these things to include:

  • Federal Tax Documents for 2021 for all relatives in your household who earned an income in 2021 and are 18+ years old. You will need to upload these on the application.

  • Photos of the front and back of your driver's license or Michigan ID.

  • Working email addresses for all relatives in your household who earned an income in 2021 and are 18+ years old. These household members will need to sign the application form to verify their details. They will be emailed a copy of the form so that they can complete a digital signature.
