AROUND a hundred trainees graduated yesterday under the Solomon Islands National University (SINU) Community Outreach Lifelong Learning Centre (COLLC) Short Courses.
COLLC’s Short Courses listed for February Professional Development Trainings 2018 took place last week beginning from Monday to February.
SINU’s Pro Vice Chancellor (Corporate) Donald Malasa during the presentation of certificates at the Kukum Campus Lecture Theatre thanked stakeholders for showing the interest to attend COLLC’s short courses as he reminded them their feedbacks will also contribute to the development of the program.
Attendees of the Short Courses receiving certificates said what SINU is offering is a very effective way to develop the country’s human resources in professional developments.
“Rather than attending classes for months and years to achieve certificates, attending such one day short courses are very helpful,” said trainees.
Amongst the trainees graduating was also two of Island Sun’s Reporters attending COLLC’s Building an Effective Work Team short course.
One of the Reporters Mrs Jennifer Kusapa expressing her appreciation for such opportunity thanked the Island Sun Administration for making it possible to attend one of COLLC’s short courses as it will help their team to achieve their goals in more professional standards.
“What I have learnt during our one day training has made me realise the stages most teams usually fail to monitor in maintaining so that they achieve their goal. So I thank both the Island Sun and SINU’s COLLC for the opportunity as what I have learnt will be a bonus for our work team,” said Kusapa.
The trainees graduating thanks COLLC’s Coordinator, Trainer, SINU’s Business Investment and Commercial Services (BICS) Department for such opportunity and are looking forward for more short courses to be offered by SINU in the near future.
Some of the short courses offered under COLLC’s Short Courses were: Managing your Time, Effective Business Communication, Managing Workplace Conflict, Project Management Training and Workplace Leadership.
