Nineteen job training programs will soon help Connecticut residents whose employment was impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, state officials and U.S. Labor Secretary Marty Walsh announced Tuesday.

The statewide and regional CareerConneCT programs will train and place more than 6,000 participants into high-quality, in-demand careers, Gov. Ned Lamont (D-Conn.) said. Training and supportive services will be available at no cost to eligible participants.

Potential job seekers will have the opportunity to enroll in a variety of sectors, including manufacturing, information technology, healthcare, infrastructure, and clean energy.
