“Our first experience with Georgia Southern’s Continuing Education Division led to many more. We began with a customized Microsoft Excel class at the Coastal Georgia Center and had such positive results that we continued with Advanced Excel, then PowerPoint and Word. We then scheduled Microsoft Project classes, which have been so helpful to our staff that we’re planning to add more.”
– Lynn Carter, Training and Process Safety Manager, Weyerhaeuser NR Port Wentworth Mill

“It doesn’t get any better than this. The way that Georgia Southern’s Continuing Education worked to customize the training to suit our needs was superb. We told them that we had special needs as we are transitioning from basically an unskilled labor force to a skilled labor team. The training centered around this thought and helped our managers and supervisors understand the difference in managing in a new environment. It really feels good when you can see the results on the manufacturing floor.

Each class session was something new and interesting for our people. We wanted a training session that our people enjoyed attending and CE delivered. It was fun to listen to them talk about what they took away from each class session. CE provided formal certificates for those completing the training… No doubt, the training helped Crider Foods become a better company with inspired managers and supervisors.”
– Glenn Anderson, SPHR, Vice President of Human Resources, Crider Foods
