Western Nevada retail businesses and their employees will benefit from a new Western Nevada Community College academic program, the Retail Management Certificate of Achievement. The new 30-credit program begins this spring semester and many of the classes are already scheduled.
Required classes are in business and business communications, accounting, information systems, management and marketing and many serve as a ladder to business degrees.
Jack Andersen, chair of the Business and Technology Division said, "After we met with representatives of the Western Association of Food Chains and local retailers, we realized adding the retail management certificate of achievement would be beneficial to everyone involved, particularly our students and retail employees. It gives them a chance to earn a relevant certificate, and the classes required are also required for associate degrees and most are transferable to four-year colleges. It is particularly beneficial to employees interested in moving up to supervisory and management positions."
The WNCC spring class schedule will be available on November 8. The printed schedule will be available later in the month.
