Job Training and Career Development

Training and continuing education is a vital component in a company’s formula for success. Training simply refers to the process of acquiring the essential skills required for a certain job. It targets specific goals, for instance understanding a process and operating a certain machine or system. Career development, on the other side, puts emphasis on broader skills, which are applicable in a wide range of situations. This includes decision-making, thinking creatively and managing people.
