Broadband Workforce Development Initiatives
The MCA strives to proactively understand the state’s broadband labor gap and identify ways to address it. To take full advantage of the federal funding available to Maine for broadband deployment, the MCA must analyze the state’s current broadband workforce. This includes determining the state’s current and future broadband workforce needs, exploring the education and training landscape necessary to fulfill those needs, and identifying opportunities to build a stronger pipeline of qualified workers to support broadband deployment.
What is MCA doing?
Working with the Maine Community College System to develop a targeted broadband training program
Coordinating with the Maine Department of Labor to establish broadband apprenticeship and pre-employment incentives.
Engaging industry partners to identify needs and craft programs to address gaps.
