Level up Your Workforce with New Job Skills Training Classes
With unemployment rates holding steady at an all-time low, it can be difficult to find the employees you need. That’s why training your existing workforce is vital. It not only helps them grow in their knowledge and skills, but it increases the likelihood that they will stay with your company.
We have found that while many business owners want to provide skills training to their workers, they are often concerned about the costs and availability of employee training classes. That’s why the Santa Clarita Valley Economic Development Corporation (SCVEDC) recently partnered with College of the Canyons and AMS Fulfillment to provide job skills training classes that are affordable, convenient and local.
These new job skills courses, partially funded by a grant from Wells Fargo, provide much needed low-cost and no-cost workforce development training right here in the Santa Clarita Valley. Courses are taught by educational and industry professionals from College of the Canyons School of Personal and Professional Learning, the Employee Training Institute, and the business private sector.
Initial summer and early fall offerings reflect training in high demand by businesses in the Santa Clarita Valley, including Distribution & Warehouse Safety, Forklift Operation, Computing & Internet Fundamentals, and Digital Communication in the Workplace. Additional courses will be added later in 2019.
New law mandates harassment training by January 1, 2020
All companies with five or more employees are required to comply with a new California law that mandates sexual harassment prevention training for both non-supervisory and supervisory employees. We are offering both the two-hour supervisory and one hour non-supervisory classes several times this summer and fall, in advance of the January 1, 2020 deadline.
Classes held in Valencia Commerce Center
Classes will be held at the Learning Center in the AMS Fulfillment facility located at 28624 Witherspoon Pkwy, Valencia, CA 91355 to provide easy access to the thousands of workers who are employed in companies in and around Valencia Commerce Center. Anyone 18 years or older may register and attend.
The main benefits of offering your employees skills training classes include improved performance, higher levels of employee satisfaction and morale, strengthening weak links in the company, creating a consistent workforce when it comes to policies, procedures and basic skills, encouraging creativity, reducing employee turnover, and making your place of business attractive to new recruits. We encourage all our local business owners to share these learning opportunities with your employees.
The first classes are filling up so don’t delay! For more information visit: www.SCVJobSkills.com or contact the Santa Clarita Economic Development Corporation at (661) 288-4400 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
