Henry Ford Community College’s Michigan Technical Education Center Division will offer free training for unemployed, underemployed, dislocated workers and veterans for the anticipated growth of defense sector employment in southeast Michigan.

This training is made possible through funding from the U.S. Department of Labor, Macomb Community College and HFCC, along with other colleges in the southeast Michigan region. The training will provide technical and non-technical training programs to better position eligible individuals for jobs in the growing defense sector.  Although colleges cannot guarantee employment, colleges will work diligently with defense sector employers for placement.
