While a full fledged college schedule may be for some people, it’s not for everyone in the community. Those with full-time jobs have limited time to attend classes, while others only want to expand certain skills. This is where communication courses at USU Eastern plays a role and assists the community.
The communication courses offered at USU Eastern focus on expanding the community’s knowledge of how to communicate effectively. Courses offered include communication skills, workplace communications, job seeking techniques, business leadership, employment relations and customer service. The courses are non-credit and offer training that help lead to job placement.
“With the coal mines, a lot of people are unemployed,” explained USU Eastern Center of Workforce Development Staff Assistant Connie Dyreng. “We can help them get jobs by offering non-credit classes that are less expensive than traditional ones.”
Not only are the communication courses offered to everyone in the community, but they can also be customized to fit individual business needs. A business can request a special training from the Center for Workforce Development that teaches their workers specific skills that can improve productivity.
For more information or to register for a course, contact the USU Eastern Center of Workforce Development at (435) 613-5440, or stop by the center located on 300 East next to the Jennifer Leavitt Student Center.
The center is open Monday-Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
