    "Our front line supervision has always had a significant amount of expertise in the hands-on construction of Mobile Medical trailers. The next step in their development was a real need for formal classroom training in order to assist in the successful execution of a Daily Build Plan. Governor’s State University was able to tailor my description of those needs into 4 distinct and very effective training modules held on site at our facility in the month of June.   

    Each instructor engaged our group in specific training topics, which included Managing Daily Workflows, Data Visualization and Problem Solving, Effective Business Communication and Email Management and Navigation.  It was a very fulfilling experience for our supervisors and more importantly gave them new skill sets that have had an immediate impact on their performance.  

    The coordination of this training program by Felicia Townsend at the School of Extended Learning was well done and the outcome has exceeded my expectations.  I strongly recommend this process to those organizations that find themselves with a similar need."

    "Governors State University School of Extended Learning provided the most relevant First Aid/CPR safety training program I've ever attended. Geoff’s extensive knowledge and highly engaging style makes him a very effective trainer that my team thoroughly enjoyed.  He was able to accommodate varying levels of knowledge on the subject and ensured everyone was capturing the pertinent information. I now have ten people trained across our two shift operation and I feel confident we would swiftly and appropriately handle any unfortunate event if it was to happen at our facility. Many thanks!"
