Maine is home to a large population of military veteran’s and the state is starting training sessions soon for veterans to learn how to convert their military skills into occupational licenses.

The Department of Professional and Financial Regulation will host a series of educational outreach sessions to help veterans and current service members with getting state occupational licenses. 

The state needs people with certain skills to meet the job market demands and those trades include electricians, plumbers, stationary steam engineers, boiler operators and multiple-fuel technicians.

Veteran’s only need to come to one of the sessions with proof of honorable discharge (DD 214).

The first session will take place during the Androscoggin County Job Fair on Friday, April 4, from 9:00 a.m. to noon at Central Maine Community College, 1250 Turner Street in Auburn.  Future sessions are below:

April 24  Hiring Heroes  (Augusta Armory)

May 22  Western Maine Job Fair  (University of Maine, Farmington)

May 28  Occupational Licensing/Job Fair  (Bangor)

June 17  Occupational Licensing/Job Fair  (Augusta)

July 30  Occupational Licensing/Job Fair  (Lewiston)
