Education

Would you like to continue your education, complete your GED or learn a new skill?

 

Continuing your education can help you get back to work or switch careers. Having a high school diploma or high school equivalency diploma can help you get started. Learning specialized skills, earning a career certificate and professional development will help set you apart and get the job you want.

 
We can help connect you with community organizations near you that can help. In the table below you will find organizations in your area that can help with your GED, career training, job training and more.
 
MDwise promotes and participates in events around the state to help members understand their MDwise health plan and benefits. At these events, members of our outreach team can answer any questions you may have including questions about education. To find MDwise events happening near you, visit our events calendar.
