UWG Newnan offers business classes

by Celia Shortt

The University of West Georgia’s Newnan campus is offering several business continuing education classes throughout the summer months.

Classes on Excel 2010 Advanced and Customer Service Essentials will be on Friday, July 18, and Essential Communication in the Workplace will be on Friday, Aug. 19.

“The purpose of the classes is to meet needs identified by our regional industry,” said Rachael Robinson, UWG director of Continuing Education. “Soft skills, and most especially communication and customer service in the workplace, are the most identified needs that we hear from businesses.”

“Additionally, Microsoft Office skills have become essential, no matter what type of business is operating,” she added. “We strive to meet the needs for the area businesses both for current employees and for the pool of candidates from which they might choose employees.”

Dr. Susan Hall, who teaches for the Richards College of Business at UWG, will be teaching Customer Service Essentials and Essential Communication in the Workplace.

All classes are from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. on UWG’s Newnan campus at 7 Solar Drive in Shenandoah Industrial Park. The fee for each is class $109.
