You can upgrade your skill sets with your current employer—putting you in a better position to keep your job or get a promotion—through the Consortium’s NJBIA Basic Skills Workforce Training Program, also known as Employability Skills Training
Through this program, you can improve your skills in one or more of the following areas:
- Communications (written, verbal and customer service)
- English as a Second Language
- Mathematics & Measurement
- PC Skills (Microsoft OS, Word, Outlook, Excel and PowerPoint)
- Spanish in the Workplace I and II
Some employers use this program to train groups of employees in specific skills sets, and the training sessions are held at their facilities.
However, even a single employee with a need for skills training can join an open-enrollment class at a nearby community college location. Let your employer know the program is tuition-free. There’s no charge to them. However, they will need to contact the Consortium to set the program in motion for you.
Training can be delivered in one of two ways:
Dedicated Classes – If your company wants to train groups of at least 15 employees in specific skills sets, the training sessions can be held at its facility.
Open-Enrollment Classes – However, an individual employee can get training by joining an open-enrollment class at a nearby community college location. See schedule of open-enrollment classes
Be sure to let your employer know that the program is granted-funded and therefore tuition-free. There’s no charge to them. However, they will need to set the program in motion for you. To get started, they can contact us.
