The program begins Feb. 25 and will train students in customer relations with an emphasis in the retail and hospitality industries.
The Cañada College Menlo Park Center is teaming up with PeninsulaWorks – Menlo Park to offer a free training program designed to help veterans and dislocated workers learn the customer relations skills necessary to obtain a job in the retail or hospitality industries.
The program begins Monday, Feb. 25 and runs 16 weeks. Classes will be held Monday through Thursday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. with a lab on Friday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Students must be a high school graduate or equivalent, have the right to work in the United States, be comfortable with the English language, and a resident of California for at least the last year-and-a-half.
All classes will be held at Job Train at the Menlo Park Center, 1200 O'Brien Drive, in East Menlo Park.
“The Cañada College Customer Relations Certificate program is intended for individuals looking to refresh or build general customer relation skills,” said Jan Roecks, interim dean of Business, Workforce, and Athletics at the college. “This is an exciting opportunity for veterans or those who have been out of the job market.”
The program is funded through the Workforce Investment Act and is administered by San Mateo County.
