Earn and Learn Program
MVCC, the Workforce Investment Board and Mohawk Valley EDGE partnered to create this unique training program, the highlights of which include:
- Careful screening and testing of participants by Working Solutions.
- 840 hours of instruction and hands-on practical training in MVCC’s state-of-the-art facility (2 semesters).
- Paid ½ day work and ½ day classroom experience for the students sponsored by the company. Although the students are technically hired by the company, the agreement does not promise employment at the end of the training period. This provides employers with an opportunity to evaluate the students as workers.
- Full tuition and books paid through New York State’s Tuition Assistance Program, Federal Pell Grants and Working Solutions.
We encourage you to consider this opportunity to develop a skilled workforce for your organization. We are available at your convenience to discuss the above training programs, as well as other training programs available through MVCC.
