SUNY Oswego partners with Syracuse Educational Opportunity Center

OSWEGO — The SUNY Oswego Phoenix Center recently partnered with the Syracuse Educational Opportunity Center to provide free and low-cost workplace skills training in Oswego County starting this month.

The pilot training program is designed to meet employer demand for higher levels of ability in using Microsoft Office Suite 2007 software.

In addition to the Computer Skills Training Certificate Program, individuals and employers may select a flexible “Skill Building” option that allows learners to focus their training time solely on new skills.

The program offers a self-paced learning environment with instructor support.

“This partnership provides us with an excellent opportunity to support the Oswego community,” said Tammy Anderson, SUNY Oswego Phoenix Center’s contract manager for professional development programs. “The partnership allows community members, as well as businesses, to take advantage of high-quality job skills training that improves efficiency, performance and earning power.”

The program, scheduled to begin March 18, may be free for individuals depending on qualifiers such as income level and residency.
