Free Basic Skills Training for Employees

County College of Morris Assistance Helps Businesses to Enhance Productivity
As a participating member of the New Jersey Basic-Skills Workforce Training Program, the County College of Morris (CCM) Center for Business and Technology is offering free basic skills training to employees of area businesses.

The basic-skills program is being offered at no charge to employers thanks to the partnership the New Jersey Department of Labor has established with the New Jersey Business and Industry Association and the New Jersey Community College Consortium for Workforce and Economic Development. Employees can participate in training in English as a second language, written and verbal communications, customer service, basic and intermediate computer skills (Word, Excel & Outlook), and mathematics and measurements.

Classes with flexible dates and times can be delivered on site at the business location provided at least 10 employees are enrolled. Employees also can attend pre-scheduled classes held at CCM’s Randolph campus. As few as one employee can be enrolled for classes at CCM. All participating employers, however, need to pay their employees their usual hourly rate during the time they are taking part in the training sessions.

Classes are available on a first-come, first-served basis, so businesses are encouraged to apply quickly. For a schedule of open enrollment classes being held at CCM, click here. For more information, email cbt@ccm.edu or call 973-328-5188.
