Lewiston based Carbonite is collaborating with community workforce partners to train and hire Technical Support Professionals. In cooperation with Carbonite, Central Maine Community College, Lewiston Adult Education, Maine Department of Labor Business Employment Services and Western Maine Community Action will offer IT Support and WorkReady Training beginning in January. Successful students will acquire a 40-Hour ITF Comp TIA certificate, 80-Hour WorkReady Certificate with keyboarding, and interview with Carbonite for a Technical Support position. Once hired, candidates will continue in their training through an On-the-Job Training opportunity. The OJT training will be tailored to the organization and provided on-site by Carbonite.
Ideal candidates will enjoy learning new technology, must interact well with people, will be available to work at least one weekend day per week and pass several assessments including a CASAS Reading and Math test. The five-week class will be offered in Lewiston. There is no charge for the program for those individuals who financially qualify.
Interested candidates should call (207) 753-9001 to register for an Informational Session on December 11th at the Lewiston CareerCenter. FMI on other WMCA programs and opportunities visit https://www.facebook.com/WesternMaineCommunityAction/and http://www.wmca.org/.
