Business Focused Computer Skills Classes Now Include MS Access at Union County College

CRANFORD - Are your employees trained or self-taught in MS Office applications? Businesses can bring their entire staff up to a common baseline of skills by taking advantage of grant-funded employee training programs offered through Union County College’s Industry-Business Institute this summer.

IBI offers two options for employers to train their employees. Workshops can be brought onsite to your business for groups of 15 or more employees. Small companies can also send their staff members to a program at the College’s Cranford or Elizabeth campuses.

The programs are funded through a grant from the NJ Department of Labor and Workforce Development and carry no tuition requirement for businesses and non-profit organizations (non-government). Employers with more than 250 employees are required to pay their workers their regular salary while in class. Smaller employers are exempt from this requirement. Employers must provide the FEIN number for the organization and basic information such as address, phone number, and date of birth for each a employee that participates. A simple registration process is available online at www.ucc.edu.go/ibi.

The courses offered through the program are available at the basic and intermediate levels and include MS Access, MS Excel, MS PowerPoint, MS Outlook, MS Word, and MS Windows. Classes are also offered in Business Writing, Business Communication (Verbal), Customer Service Skills, Problem Solving, Time Management, Spanish for the Workplace, and English as a Second Language.

To arrange for an onsite course for employees, please contact Nancy Burke at (908) 527-7207 or email burke@ucc.edu. To view the course selection, go to www.ucc.edu.go/ibi and click on “ongoing grant-funded training.”
