SALES & SERVICE FUNDAMENTALS
Credit: 3.5 elective per year
This is a marketing education program designed to provide students with the knowledge, skills, and attitudes necessary for a successful transition to a service occupation. During the first year students learn skills related to human relations, basic economics and basic employability skills. During the second year, students learn skills related to four general areas: promotion, selling, distribution, computer operations and hospitality services. In both years the competencies needed to make the transition to work or to regular career-technical training are also addressed. Students receive practical application work experiences both in-house at CVCC and at community-based training sites at area businesses. Placement of students with disabilities in the program is through the IEP process. Placement in the program can be repeated as necessary to meet individual needs, but annual re-application is required.
