Leadership development course offered

Sept. 18, 2018

 

     Ashland Community and Technical College Workforce Solutions is offering a course on leadership development for emergency response supervisors.
     The course will be from 8 a.m.-5 p.m. Oct. 8-12 on the Roberts Drive Campus. The cost is $259. Instructor for the course is Beverly Sharp, ACTC’s criminal justice program coordinator.
     The purpose of the course is to develop leadership skills for emergency response staff that have been recently promoted or demonstrate the potential for promotion possibilities. Oftentimes, internal promotions pose difficult challenges. This course is designed to not only develop leadership and supervisory skills, but also to develop the necessary skills to effectively deal with internal agency challenge, legal issues, personnel challenges and recognizing job stressors.
     Although the course would be beneficial to any leadership or supervisory staff, there will be specific material as it applies to those working in public safety.
     For more information or to register for the course, contact Workforce Solutions at as_workforce@kctcs.edu or 606-326-2072.
