Workforce development training is vitally important as the "skills gap" in the United States today is becoming an epidemic.
NAPLES, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, October 9, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — With 5.6 million jobs open in the United States and 8.7 million people available to work, people need something that will help them distinguish themselves from the crowd. The National Council for Continuing Education and Training (NCCET), in collaboration with its premier sustaining partner, Growth Development Associates (GDA), has extended the two tuition-free online Workforce Development courses for up to one million students, alumni and professionals to October 31. 2018. Workforce development training is vitally important as the “skills gap” in the United States today is becoming an epidemic.
The Workplace Communication online course allows students to build the core critical skills such as: communication, teamwork, problem solving, accountability, and collaboration. Focusing on the essential engagement skills will address that skills gap employers are facing today. Consultative Selling provides students with the skills to fill the largest open job market in the United States. Any industry in the country needs sales people to help meet any organization bottom line result. Eric Richardson, CEO, GDA states “The Consultative Sales process is not used just to win sales but is the communications enabler for every business interaction.”
Baby Boomers are retiring at a higher rate than ever before. These vacated jobs are staying open because people do not have the skills necessary to fill the position. For example, an open job in manufacturing may remain vacant because while the potential candidate has the technical skills, they do not have the Workplace Communication skills to effectively engage with the organization. Individuals struggling to find the right job or who are “underemployed”, or not making the career progress that leads to a professionally and financially satisfying career, should take advantage of the $600 million-dollar tuition assistance provide by The National Council of Continuing Education and Training, along with GDA.
The $599 course tuition is waived for anyone who enrolls between now and Wednesday, October 31, 2018. Participants only pay a $10 per course registration fee. Essentials of Workplace Communication takes approximately 26 hours to complete and Consultative Selling takes approximately 34 hours to complete. Both courses will prepare people to be the best candidate for any job. Workforce Development courses will be available to participants through December 31, 2018.
