UpGrade Launch!Name: UpGrade Launch!Date: June 1, 2019 - June 3, 2019Event Description:An investment in your employees is an investment in your continued success.
We know that ongoing Professional Development is essential to maintaining a competitive advantage, but we also recognize that the day-to-day demands of running a business can make it difficult to search out up-to-date, relevant and comprehensive training opportunities for your team.
The Northumberland Central Chamber of Commerce, in partnership with Contact North*, has done the groundwork for you, and together we have created UPGRADE, a free, online employee training program that covers topics including customer service, workplace communication and essential career skills. According to the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA), all employees and volunteers must have the relevant training by 2025, so we’ve also included courses on the “Ontario Human Rights Code”, “Information and Communication Standards” and “Customer Service Standards”, as well as the mandatory courses that all managers must complete.
Members of the Northumberland Central Chamber of Commerce will regularly receive information on new courses, complete with details on how to quickly and easily register for these valuable professional development opportunities. The online courses are self-paced, you can enroll at any time, and there is instructor feedback to help your employees earn their Certificates of Completion.
Details on the first course will be distributed shortly, but if you have any questions, please contact Kevin Ward at email@example.com or call 905-372-5831
