Wor-Wic Offers Customized Training for Area Businesses
July 15, 2009

Wor-Wic Community College offers customized workforce training solutions through its continuing education and workforce development division. Almost 500 local employers take advantage of customized training services and continuing education courses offered by Wor-Wic each year.

“We pride ourselves on our flexibility, quick turnaround and small class size,” said Teresa Disharoon, director of business and industry training. “We offer comprehensive service, support and follow-up to ensure a company’s training goals are met.”

The customized training process begins with a root cause analysis and a needs assessment to determine what type of training is needed. Using the results, a customized program is designed to help correct critical issues and increase productivity for the company.

The training is tailored to meet company schedules and needs, and is conducted both day and evening in college facilities or at company sites. Laptop computers that Wor-Wic brings to a company’s work site make training in computer applications convenient for companies.

“Training often pays for itself and then some, by improving profitability,” Disharoon explained. “It’s crucial for businesses to strengthen workforce skills by providing cost-effective, results-oriented training for employees, especially in tough economic times.”

Courses and seminars, which vary from basic skills development to sophisticated business operations, are conducted for individual companies and clusters of companies with related training needs.

“Our instructors are professionals in their fields, and they bring a lot of expertise to our courses and training.”
