“I need to work to afford college, and I don’t want to leave Dover-Foxcroft to attend college away. The Penquis Higher Education Center in Dover-Foxcroft is the reason I am able to attend college. By staying here I am able to work with young children at a local child card facility — work directly related to my career goals — while going to school. The Penquis College Center has made it easy for me to pursue my goal of becoming an Infant/Toddler Teacher.”
Commercial Driver’s License (CDL) Training Center
The Commercial Driver’s License (CDL) Training Center will begin operation Fall 2018 and will provide instruction for those seeking to gain Class A and Class B driver licenses. The center will eventually serve students and trainees at four of the state’s community colleges, including Eastern Maine Community College. The program will utilize a fleet of heavy-duty trucks donated to the college by Dead River Company, including three Kenworth T800 trucks, a Freightliner FL70, and a Navistar 4900.
