Individuals who have become unemployed or underemployed as a result of COVID-19 now have until Oct. 16 to apply for free tuition through the Nebraska Workforce Retraining Initiative.
Mid-Plains Community College is partnering with the Department of Economic Development and Nebraska Department of Labor to offer the initiative.
Qualifying individuals can apply for scholarships to help them receive training for high-wage, high-demand careers and industries.
Both short-term for-credit and non-credit course offerings are available through MPCC. Trainings must be completed by May 31. Additional funding may be available to help offset the cost of books, tools and other materials needed for the classes.
Applications and program details are available at mpcc.edu/RetrainNE. Amy Sabatka, MPCC area career placement coordinator, can also provide more information at (308) 535-3619 or email@example.com.
