Job and skills training is the portion of corporate and continuing education that provides training and educational opportunities for the workforce. Beyond teaching new staff the specific details of their jobs, many companies train employees in leadership, performance management, lean operations, critical thinking, social interaction, soft skills, and they assist in the obtainment of professional certification.
The University of Rhode Island, Community College of Rhode Island, Rhode Island College and the Rhode Island School of Design Continuing Education all offer courses at our facility. They range from basic computer skills to management training to photography and graphic arts. Some of the courses enable your employees to bolster their basic math or English skills or help them improve their knowledge in specialized subjects, such as learning to speak Spanish or presentation skills. The graduate-level courses bear credits for students earning certifications and degrees.
