Employees who exhibit superior customer service skills can advance quickly in the business world. Many large companies point to customer service as their number one reason for success. Western Nevada Community College recognizes this need in the business community and has developed a new 30-credit Certificate of Achievement program in customer service, with the first classes this spring at WNCC Fallon.
The new program will offer students business courses with a special focus on customer service. It is designed to develop vital skills for success in all facets of business and industry by emphasizing effective communication, problem solving, and customer satisfaction.
Structured in a modular format, students who choose four, eight, or all 12 credits of the specialized customer service classes will receive certificates of completion which will document their progress and provide proof of job skills as they move through the program. The new classes can be also applied to other WNCC business degrees.
