The Adult Education programs in Maine have been working hard to provide high-quality education to those in the community while working to fill workforce gaps at financial institutions.  At the end of the program, CFTEA awards each graduate with an ABA Today’s Teller Certificate. The Portland, Maine location completed its third group of graduates in partnership with CFTEA and area financial institutions. These graduates are available and eager to find employment and a career with a bank or credit union.  Over the years, many graduates have been hired for their outstanding skills and knowledge as premier candidates. In fact, the students come to the United States from countries where they have extensive educational credentials and experience. A number of them had small children, worked all night, and then came into class for the morning being fully committed to the program. They are truly inspirational!
