The Chamber’s Professional Development & Training Centre (PD&TC) offers training workshops at its Government Square location all throughout the year.
However, one thing that many do not know is that the Chamber can arrange for custom training for some of its courses, at your business location. So, do call if you have a group of 10 or more who are interested in a particular training topic.
Recent training sessions in this regard took place at Cayman Islands Airport Authority (CIAA) and Appleby and these were presented by Chamber facilitators Catherine Tyson and Lois Kellyman respectively. Courses provided were:
- Basic Grammar & Writing Skills Part 1
- Basic Grammar & Writing Skills Part 2
– Presented by Catherine Tyson
The New Supervisor – Presented by Lois Kellyman
“The importance of knowing and utilising the mechanics of good grammar and writing is paramount to accurate communication and necessary for the success of all employees. Having captive and receptive participants such as the CIAA just makes the day go by faster.”
