A strong workforce relies on well-trained supervisors with effective leadership and business skills. Mid America Industrial Park employers and employees can find that training – with college credit – at the RSU Pryor campus, which is conveniently located in the industrial park.
RSU Pryor is offering the Leadership Advancement Program (LAP) to help prepare employees for supervisory positions. The program includes four credit courses carefully selected to help develop skills needed to:
- Understand business concepts
- Communicate more effectively
- Use a computer and common programs, such as email and spreadsheets
- Learn accounting principles
Each class is eight weeks long, so you will study only one subject at a time. With two classes in the spring and two classes during the fall, you can earn 12 hours of college credit in only one year’s time. The program has been carefully designed to be a manageable workload for full-time working adults. A record of completion will be presented to students who pass all four courses.
The program was developed in partnership with American Castings, a leading employer in the MidAmerica Industrial Park. American Castings plans to pay tuition and fees for its employees who enroll in the program and successfully complete each course.
While the program was developed on behalf of the company, the leadership program is open to all area businesses and individuals interested in documenting their business competencies and earning college credit. Check with the HR office at your employer to see if they offer a tuition reimbursement program.
