IBI Offers Free MS Office Training to Area Companies

Thursday, June 11, 2015

Elizabeth - Workshops in essential MS Office applications (MS Excel, MS Word, MS Outlook, MS PowerPoint and MS Windows) can now be brought onsite free of charge to companies and non-profit organizations in Union County. This is possible through a grant from the NJ Department of Labor and Workforce Development provided to the New Jersey Business and Industry Association. Programs are delivered by the Industry-Business Institute at Union County College.

"We offer a schedule of these programs on our campuses in Cranford and Elizabeth," says Dr. Lisa Hiscano, Director of Continuing and Professional Education at Union County College. "But, what makes this offering even more valuable is our ability to bring it to groups of employees at their workplace."

These 8-hour workshops are taught by highly qualified instructors, include the use of our mobile computer lab and can be scheduled to meet workplace requirements. "Each student also receives a workbook to keep on their shelves for future reference," says Hiscano. "Minimum class size for onsite classes is ten."

Classes in Customer Service Skills, Verbal Communications, Business Writing, English as a Second Language and Basic Math and Measurement are also portable and free of charge through this same grant.

Registration is easy for both our open enrollment and our onsite classes. "We have created a system of online registration for both our open enrollment classes AND our client specific onsite classes. This streamlines the process for submitting the information required for the program," says Hiscano. "Onsite class schedules should be booked two to three weeks in advance."

To learn how to bring this program to your business or to a group such as a chamber of commerce or industry association, please contact one of our staff members.
