  • Scholarships for Adult Career Training Offered through North Montco Education Foundation

    Limited career training scholarships for adults’ in-need are available through the North Montco
    Education Foundation. These scholarships provide a chance for adults with limited resources to train
    for a high-demand occupation in one of North Montco Technical Career Center’s (North Montco) adult
    evening programs. Many adults, including Veterans, are working in jobs with a limited or non-existent
    pathway to a self-sustaining family wage. And since the demand for HVAC Technicians, Electricians,
    Welders, Machinists, and other technical professions has never been greater, this scholarship and
    training opportunity can make a huge impact on one’s future earning capacity. Scholarships are limited,
    call today to learn more.


    North Montco’s Continuing Education Program offers several high-demand occupation sectors where
    students build workplace skills and earn the certifications employers want most: Construction Trades,
    Health Care, Engineering, and Manufacturing. Training in all of the programs reflect current industry
    trends and advances in technology. Partnerships with business and industry, manufacturing and schools
    have kept North Montco’s programs state of the art to meet the demands of local employers.
