Developing the Skills of Your Workforce.

QVCC is dedicated to designing and delivering learning and development programs for our region’s incumbent workforce. Our programs help employees upgrade their skills, develop their leadership capabilities, and increase their capacity to contribute to personal and organizational success. We provide both open enrollment and customized training options for optimal convenience that meets your training and development goals.


Manufacturing Blueprint Reading (TRAD): This course introduces the basic principles of blueprint reading. Topics include line types, orthographic projections, dimensioning and tolerancing methods, and notes. Upon successful completion you should be able to interpret basic blueprints, calculate necessary dimensions and visualize the features of a part.

Sales Fundamentals (TRAD): Although the definition of a sale is simple enough, the process of turning someone into a buyer can be very complex. It requires you to convince someone with a potential interest that there is something for them in making their interest concrete – something that merits spending some of their hard-earned money. The Sales Fundamentals workshop will give participants a basic sales process, plus some basic sales tools, that they can use to seal the deal, no matter what the size of the sale. Your participants will become more confident, handle objections, and learning how to be a great closer.

We will also cover tips on how to move from peer to supervisor!
