The "Change Contract"
This course involves a change contract. A change contract is an agreement signed by the program attendee, and supervisor stating that the registrant will take the information gained during the classes and incorporate it into their workday. Jamie will follow up with emails to assure the “changes” have been implemented and to answer any questions the participant may have. This value-added follow up is an opportunity for registrants to consult with Jamie and share with their supervisor how the program has successfully improved their on-the-job skills.
For companies who register two or more employees or registers the same employee for both sessions a 10% discount will be applied. This program is offered in partnership with the Schuylkill Chamber of Commerce. The Chamber member price for this course is $1,150 per person/per session.
