CUSTOMIZABLE WORKSHOPS

Teleworks USA provides free workshops designed to upskill prospective teleworkers and prepare them for a variety of teleworking jobs. And best of all, workshop curriculum is completely customizable based on employer needs. Our workshops provide up to 72 hours of instruction on topics including digital literacy, customer service, and tech support, but can be updated with company-specific instruction so applicants can hit the ground running once they begin their new jobs. If you’re an employer, we can partner with you to help meet your workforce needs.

Teleworks USA’s workshops provide the opportunity to earn multiple industry-recognized certifications, including the National Career Readiness Certificate (NCRC) and the National Retail Federation (NRF) Certificate.

Seventy-two hours of online instruction in customer service, digital literacy, and tech support, including workshops on XBox gaming platforms and digital cable and satellite boxes.

Hub managers facilitate each workshop, which can accommodate between six to 12 participants.
