Business Training Opportunity

Posted: Fri, February 2, 2018
Our Chickasaw County Business Community Sector Board has a goal to increase the skills of our local employees.  One of the ways to accomplish this is by offering local, high quality training.  NICC has developed a great opportunity for customer service, leadership, and team work trainings in Chickasaw County through a Business Sector Board Alliance.  The cost is $175 for two staff to attend five trainings at the Basic Level.  They also have an Executive Level training for $100 more, if you are interested.  In order to move this forward, we need at least eight businesses to commit to this training.  In order to do this the easiest way possible, we are asking those who are interested to fill out the following Chickasaw County Survey by February 9, 2018 by 5:00 pm.  Once they have gathered the results from the survey, NICC will then work with their trainers to get the course offerings scheduled.  They will aim to start in March of 2018.

Our goal is to assist in growing our local human capital and to provide high quality training that will meet our community's needs.  If you have any questions, please contact Megan at nheconomic12@gmail.com or 641-394-2437 or Holly O'Brien at obrienh@nicc.edu or 563-562-3263 ext 144.
