eForcePEI: to reinforce capacities and knowledge

eforcePEI lowresWELLINGTON – Jan. 30, 2015 – Ten people, representing various PEI businesses and organizations, benefitted from a lunch-and-learn on eForcePEI’s free online training programs Jan. 30.

Programme coordinator Andrew Hickey noted eForcePEI currently offers more than 140 different courses, all for free, on work-related topics ranging from social media to work safety and from office software applications to conflict resolution. Employers can also create private workspaces for groups of employees.

Hickey noted that those interested must register by March 31, 2015, since current funding for the program runs out on that date. However, those who have signed up still have a year to complete their courses. At present, five of the courses are offered in French. More information is available at www.eforcepei.ca.

The lunch-and-learn was organized jointly by the Acadian and Francophone Chamber of Commerce of PEI and the Wellington Rural Action Centre (RAC).
