Members of the Machinists Union only pay to send their kids (or themselves) to school if they want to.
Thanks to a partnership with Eastern Gateway Community College, members of the world’s largest transportation and aerospace union and their families can earn an Associate’s Degree online, for free, in their spare time… from a recognized and accredited community college.
The IAM Free College Program pays for any tuition and book costs union members may have left after they use scholarships and financial aid. If the student doesn’t qualify for any other aid, all costs are still covered.
It really is free, and virtually everyone that completes the registration process is accepted.

Here are 5 New Courses Being Offered to IAM Members this Spring.
TEACHER EDUCATION DEGREE
These classes train students for careers in education, with options to receive specialized training in Pre-K childcare and more. Machinists Union members who love working with kids can begin earning their Associate’s Degree this spring, at no cost.
From Eastern Gateway: “When is hacking legal? When you use it to secure your own network. This new method of hacking, called ethical hacking or white-hat hacking, uses common and readily available hacking tools and techniques to audit your network so you can locate and close security holes. Whether you’re running a small home network or you’re an enterprise network administrator, Eastern Gateway training and courses will teach you how to better protect your system against those who wish to gain unauthorized access.”
DIGITAL AND SOCIAL MEDIA MARKETING
From Eastern Gateway: “One of the biggest challenges for most business owners is to find a continuous supply of new customers. Over the past decade, some have differentiated themselves by leveraging the Internet and social media to do just that. Whether you consider yourself a social media novice or a seasoned veteran, this course will give you a solid foundation and thorough understanding of what social media is and how you can use it to grow your business.”
Looking for ways to promote your cause or business? Attracting new customers, and new profits, isn’t easy. It requires a professional with the training and expertise needed to help nonprofits and businesses stand out. The Machinists Union, in partnership with Eastern Gateway Community College, is proud to make a range of Marketing and Advertising learning options available to members.
