Chamber promotes training in face of job losses

| 16/06/2010

(CNS): The Chamber of Commerce Professional Development & Training Centre says it has trained 544 people this year on 41 different training courses that have been offered since the beginning of January. With 29 more courses scheduled before the end of 2010 the chamber said it was important in difficult times for people to enhance their work place skills. “Education and workforce development is a key focus of the Chamber of Commerce, and in today’s strained economy where people are losing jobs through down-sizing and closures, it is important to make yourself the most desirable employee possible’” said Wil Pineau CCE, CEO, Chamber of Commerce.

“And it stands to reason that the most desirable employee is an educated employee,” he added. He said the course were also very helpful to business owners. “Professional development training opportunities also assist companies who are looking to restructure and be more innovative in their business planning initiatives. This can often be achieved by the development of management and other key skills within existing staff members,” Pineau said.
The Chamber centre has been providing members and their employees, as well as the wider community, with what it said were affordable training programmes, workshops, and seminars since 1995. Courses cover Customer Service, Business Essentials, Business Basics, Finance, and Supervision and Management.
 The courses are taught by professional, qualified local and international facilitators that take great care in providing attendees with the most up to date and relevant information in their field.
All training courses are held at the Chamber of Commerce conference room in Macdonald Square at 51 Fort Street from 9am – 4:30pm unless otherwise stated. Call Joanne Diaz-Berry at the Chamber of Commerce on 949-8090 ext.123 for more information or go online to register at
