The Center for Workforce Training is striving to build and advance our partnerships with area businesses. We have made it a priority to listen to our local employers and have worked to develop customized training that fits their needs. This has included bringing in nationally recognized trainings to San Juan County and delivering them in a cost effective manner.
This spring, employers and employees will find high caliber workshops, seminars and trainings offered through the Center for Workforce Training. Those who are new to supervisory positions will want to sign up for Effective Frontline Leadership. In just 16 hours, students will gain a strong foundation of the primary skills needed in leadership positions, including how to effectively engage in collaborative communication, provide feedback, as well as learn methods to handle conflict and change.
Having an effective team requires understanding the generational differences organizations are now experiencing. 4 Generations in One Workplace provides an excellent opportunity to gain insight of the Boomer, Gen X and Gen Y communication styles and how to expand the capacity to manage diverse working styles.
Professional development continues with other class offerings including Targeted Business Writing. In one day, employees can brush up grammar, punctuation and spelling skills to help deliver a clear, concise and positive message. Stay on top of the rapidly advancing technology with classes in Excel and Access. We offer all levels of training – from beginning to advanced classes.
Through the revised Human Resources for the Non-HR Manager course, both business owners and managers will gain insight about the legal aspects involved in hiring and conducting interviews. This in-depth class will also cover situations that can arise following the hiring process, such as compensation and discipline.
Whether you are a business owner, manager, supervisor or an employee looking to advance your skills, the Center for Workforce Training has the training you need to succeed. Thank you for selecting us to help you take your career and skill set to the next level!
