Area employers are encouraged to partner with the Center for Business and Technology (CBT) at County College of Morris (CCM) – the state’s ongoing leader in grant-funded training for updating employees’ skills for business success.

Additional popular communications and management skills training includes First-Time Supervisor Essentials, Critical Thinking Skills, Expert Problem Solving, Communicating to Improve Business Success, Email Writing/Best Practices, Managing Multiple Priorities under Pressure, Tools for Management Success, and Achieving Customer Service Excellence.
Computer classes include basic to advanced Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Total Workday Control Using Outlook. Expanded offerings cover specialized function classes for Excel, Access and One Note.
Most classes are eight-hours long, running from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., and are scheduled on weekdays. Employees can register for as many classes as their employers deem necessary.
Morris County area employers continue to receive more training opportunities and program benefits than any other section of the state as a result of the work of CCM’s CBT. Over the last three years, more than 650 area companies have experienced the value of this grant-funded business skills training program. During that time, more than 11,000 employees received training through CBT and made a very positive impact on the businesses where they work.
Courses are offered by CBT through a successful partnership developed by the New Jersey Department of Labor with the New Jersey Business and Industry Association and the New Jersey Community College Consortium for Workforce and Economic Development.
Classes fill up quickly so early registration is strongly encouraged. For additional information and onsite training options, contact Bob Lipka at 973-328-5185 or Beth Rodgers at 973-328-5186.
