This year, the Northern Lower AHEC is excited to be able to offer two different opportunities to support your journey to a healthcare career!

The first opportunity is a free, pre-paid subscription to Virtual Job Shadow and LifePath Career Exploration Course. Whether you have decided your career path or not, these online tools will benefit you in the months to come. We have a limited number of seats available. You can use the tools and resources that you need when you need them. The seat license normally costs $66.00 but is free to you, courtesy of Northern Lower AHEC.
