Customized Training

The Center for Workforce and Professional Development was very, very responsive and open to developing a win-win-win marketing workshop program. They worked hard to do everything right the first time from assistance in obtaining enrollment, to providing colorful signage on campus directing workshop attendees, and the view from the room was excellent! From beginning to end, I was treated like royalty; your hospitality is genuine, consistent, and really heartwarming. We can’t wait to come back!

  • Thanks so much for helping to set up the New Group Leaders Supervisory training program. Not only is it beneficial for the employees attending, it is beneficial for all of us at Panolam and we appreciate all the help we have received from your staff, the trainer, and the Maine Quality Center. It has made a difference in so many new group leaders, I see more confidence in them since attending this training and for that we are grateful!
  • We recently contracted with Central Maine Community College...for a Lean Fundamentals Workshop. Right from the very beginning, CMCC staff were great to work with as we coordinated this training. The training team at CMCC were very thorough in preparation, taking the time to personally meet with us to understand our needs and were able to tailor the training to the specific objectives of our organization. After hearing my staff’s overwhelmingly positive feedback from the training, I will be calling my partners at CMCC for future trainings.
