Throughout the year we partner with the Provincial Department of Labour and Advanced Education to offer a series of FREE Business Skills Courses through their Workplace Education Initiative. This initiative promotes learning at work and supports the development of business owners and their employees by gaining the skills you need to innovate and compete.

We offer these courses approximately three times a year starting in January, May and September. Each course is 11 weeks long and take place here in The Village on Main.

While COVID-19 and social distancing directives to not allow the classes to meet in person, we are currently offering them online.

Registration is Now Open for our next round of Business Skills Training! We currently have two courses ready to go (see below) but we are working on the details for a third one. Stay Tuned!

You will have to commit to participate and attend minimum 80% of the time to be entitled to receive the certificate. This is a 40 hours course.

COURSE NAME: Customer Service Excellence

As things begin to open and we are again going to be dealing with face-to-face interactions with customers, clients, co-workers as well as associates. We are going to have to place an exorbitant amount of time and training back into getting the workforce up to the high-level standard we have become accustomed to. And equally important: how do you retain your current, loyal employees.
