SBDC offers Management Certification seminar

The Tyler Junior College Small Business Development Center will offer a "Management Skills Certification Seminar" consisting of six entrepreneurial courses beginning April 7. Classes will meet on consecutive Thursday evenings through May 12. Classes last from 6-8:30 p.m. and meet in Room 134 of the Regional Training and Development Complex, on the TJC West campus.

"Business skills are ultimately more critical to small business owner’s success than the service or product they are selling," said SBDC business trainer Robert Lewis. "Yet, for one reason or another, people in small businesses tend to spend very little time honing their management skills."

Lewis said the six-week seminar will provide valuable skills in legal matters, business planning, accounting and taxes, banking, advertising and strategic thinking for small businesses. Instructors for each of these classes are accomplished business professionals in their area of experience. Participants in this seminar have the opportunity to question the instructors about the business topics covered. This valuable advice would be costly if sought individually.

This seminar has been designed for individuals who currently own a small business or individuals who are considering starting their own small business.

"Often business owners send their employees to this seminar to give them a better understanding of the business environment in which they are working," Lewis said. "The classes are considered as information only classes with no outside reading assignments or tests given."

A notebook containing material presented by each instructor will be made available to each participant.

To register for the seminar, call TJC School of Continuing Studies at 903-510-2900. The cost for all six classes is $100. The course number is BUSG1011 CRN35134 and is titled "Management Skills Certification."

Further information concerning this seminar can be obtained by calling Lewis at 903-510-3076 or 903-510-2975.
