Through this program, Rogers County residents can apply for a training scholarship, allowing them to complete an approved technical program at no cost.
Courses offered include:
- Child Development Associate Training
- Class A (CDL)
- Additional training certificates include, but are not limited to CPR/First Aid, OSHA 10 and 30, etc.
More than $150,000 will be distributed to program applicants and remain open until reserves are exhausted. Rogers County residents who meet the low-to-moderate income guidelines established by HUD (see below) have been impacted by the Coronavirus pandemic will be given priority acceptance. However, any interested Rogers County resident is encouraged to apply! Funds will be allocated until depleted.
