In addition to our certification classes we also offer a range of educational opportunities for all folks of all backgrounds and abilities. The goal of these programs is to allow people who are unable to complete a certification course to gain skills and experience. They also can have specific focus on areas of interest to folks here in Maine.
We believe that it is critically important that everyone has an opportunity to become more prepared for an emergency.
