NJ: For area businesses who need an easy way to provide computer
training for their staff members, Mercer County Community
Colleges Center for Training and Development (CTD) is
offering a new Mobile Computer Lab On Wheels .
late this month, the CTDs mobile lab will bring computer
training in the entire Microsoft Suite right to the doors
of area businesses via experienced instructors who will travel
with 15 laptop computers and related technology. Clients would
only need to supply a room with tables or desks.
to CTD Director Elaine Weinberg, the new service is designed
to give smaller businesses in Mercer County area a more convenient
way to provide professional development to their employees.
Smaller companies are often too short-staffed to enable
their employees to travel off-site, even for much-needed computer
training, Weinberg said. The new Mobile Computer
Lab saves travel time and maximizes efficiently.
Center for Training and Development provides customized training
and coaching for organizations both large and small. In addition,
the CTD assists companies in writing and administering NJ
Department of Labor & Workforce Development (LWD) Customized
Training Grants that can help offset the costs associated
with training their workforce. The LWD is now accepting applications
for new grants, and Weinberg is encouraging companies to contact
the CTD to prepare the grant application.
competitive grants are a key component in the Governors
Economic Development Strategy, and are designed to benefit
both employees and businesses by enhancing the skills of workers,
thereby increasing their productivity and the competitiveness
of the employer. According to Weinberg, This investment
by the State of New Jersey is provided to upgrade the skills
of the workforce and to make companies more competitive in
training will be launched later this month. Interested companies
may call Weinberg for further information at 609-570-3612
or e-mail email@example.com.
