SoftSkillsPros Online Training

Online modules are completed on an individual basis, on a desktop, laptop, or even mobile device. Online modules are meant to help institutional and campus offices assure that every professional on staff has access to training and education. It is not always possible for every staff member to attend an on-site seminar or participate in a national conference. SoftSkillsPros’ online modules are effective training and education solutions that are action-oriented, convenient, and cost-effective.

Each online module contains less than 15 minutes of facilitator instruction. Participant engagement in the exercises, through the accompanying workbook, means that modules actually take approximately 30 minutes to complete.
