Customer Service Training
We all know that it takes a large investment of time and money to win a customer but only seconds to lose one due to service issues. Our customer service training programs not only focus on the importance of providing stellar service but also provide key takeaway tools your employees can utilize to continue delighting your customers and growing your business.

Computer Training
The average US worker already spends one-third of his/her workday at a computer and one-quarter of the workday on the Net. Is your software investment producing the results you want or would computer training enhance your return on investment? Workforce Training & Continuing Education at VHCC provides training for all Microsoft desktop applications, Adobe, AutoCAD, and web development, just to name a few.

Professional & Supervisory Development, Leadership and Critical Skills
A recent survey of employers in Smyth County, Virginia, found the most common traits of a good employee were a positive work ethic, a positive attitude, and desire to learn and be trained. In fact “soft skills,” or what Workforce Training & Continuing Education at VHCC likes to call critical skills, were top among the 60 plus traits identified in the study.

We have many resources to provide supervisory, leadership, personal development, and critical skills training to your employees. In partnership with AchieveGlobal and other leading researchers and developers of leadership and management programs, Workforce Training & Continuing Education at VHCC is able to offer high quality, affordable training.
