The Maine Quality Centers is working with Pratt & Whitney to offer free training for up to 150 new Pratt & Whitney employees through York County Community College's Precision Machining Technology facility here in Sanford, Maine.  The training will begin this month and continue through December, according to this article from the Sanford News. After reviewing the Sanford News article and speaking with Maine Quality Center director Jim McGowan, Growth Council director Jim Nimon said, “I want to clarify an important point and remind folks that anyone interested in this program must first seek employment with, and be hired by, Pratt & Whitney.” He added that “We couldn’t be more pleased that YCCC’s technical training will be offered at their Sanford location.”

The Sanford News article has further details on how to apply for the positions.  Pratt & Whitney will also be attending the York County Regional Job Fair in Springvale on Friday, March 27th. More information on the job fair can be found here.
