Pensacola, Fl. (PRWEB) December 20, 2011
Smart Horizons, the smart choice in innovative training solutions, today announced their much anticipated Vocational Job Training (VJT) program for the ninety million Americans who lack critical job skills. The program is rolling out with two career tracks: Transportation Specialist and Telecommunicator. In addition to the targeted career training, each of these courses includes life skills and professional skills from Lifetime Training Solutions’ Transitional Life Skills training. The Transportation Specialist track includes all of the preparation courses to prepare a learner to take the Commercial Driver’s License (CDL) skills test. The Telecommunicator track includes training that meets APCO Project 33 standards for call centers.
“Many companies have jobs available but cannot find qualified workers. Our Vocational Job Training program is designed to give dislocated workers the necessary training to successfully complete a certification exam. The program is specifically for those individuals who do not have a college degree and need critical job skills training to quickly find work,” said Steve Samaha, Director of Lifetime Training Solutions. “Having specific certifications is often the key to successfully finding a job. However, taking traditional classroom instruction requires commuting, obtaining daycare for children, and sitting for hours each week in a classroom. Our program allows students to take courses at home and at their own pace.”
Lifetime Training Solutions provides a full spectrum of online learning programs ranging from independent living skills to transitional assistance and vocational job training. Courses are housed on the secure, proprietary NexPort Campus learning management system, which allows program administrators, directors, or training coordinators to track and report on student progress in real time. The next generation online learning and knowledge management platform now provides fully integrated synchronous learning using the NexMeeting online conferencing system that includes integrated telephone and computer-based audio, slide presentations, chat, white boards, and recording capability. Instructors and administrators are able to conduct web-based seminars and classes that are accessible to subscribers in even the most remote regions. NexPort Campus also supports interactive engagement within learning communities through the use of videos, wikis, blogs, collaborative web pages, and threaded discussions.
