The Maricopa County Community College District and Maricopa County will provide 250 students with new career pathways by offering no-cost training to further careers in high-demand industries.
"This partnership exemplifies the dedication of Maricopa County to invest in the career development and success of its residents," Maricopa County Board of Supervisors Chairman Clint Hickman said.
"We believe that nurturing the growth of our workforce is not just an investment in our residents, but also in our local economy and the employers who call our community home."
This is the second collaboration this year between Maricopa County and MCCCD.
Participants can earn credentials to become licensed practical nurses, work in early childhood education, enter or advance in the construction industry, help people through behavioral health careers or enter the world of information technology careers.
