AUSTIN, TX – City of Austin Economic Advancement Department acknowledges 30 regional entrepreneurs as well as small business staff members that gained an Organization Skills Accreditation on Friday, July 23 with a digital event. Recipients were called for to finish six training courses made to reinforce abilities needed to effectively manage and also grow a small business. The courses were supplied via a collaboration with The College of Texas at Austin Center for Expert Education (UT CPE).
“We are delighted that so many present as well as future entrepreneurs had the ability to raise their organization acumen even throughout a pandemic. This speaks to the resiliency of local business.” describes Sylnovia Holt-Rabb, Performing Director of the Economic Development Department. “Austin remains to be a great place for local business development and we are here to help.”
While numerous classes were organized in-person prior to the pandemic, the training program efficiently expanded online options to give continued understanding with safety considerations. Course subjects varied from human resources fundamentals to local business accounting, as well as social networks advertising and marketing to recordkeeping. In December 2020, an extra 40 Service Skills Accreditation grads were acknowledged and celebrated. Over the last decade of this collaboration, more than 10,000 participants have taken advantage of business training taught by seasoned UT CPE teachers.
