Frequently Asked Questions

We’re a small company of 10 people. Can you still provide a customized program?

Absolutely! Classes can be almost any size. In fact, we prefer smaller class sizes to promote interaction and to help maximize return on your investment.

We have some very specialized business processes. Will you still be able to help us?

We work with all kinds of companies - manufacturing, research and development, and service companies, for example. We can customize a training program to fit your specific needs.

I want to provide my people with training, but I simply can’t afford to shut my operation down. How long will the training take?

Our programs are flexible and allow you to determine the time for each class and the number of employees in training at any one time. We can train during lunch hours, before or after normal business hours, or in increments during the day.

Most college level programs take years to complete and are expensive and we just don’t have that kind of time. What can you do for us?

While FSW provides a variety of for-credit degree and certificate programs, the Corporate Training and Professional Services arm of the School of Business and Technology specializes in accelerated, customized, non-credit based training. That makes us flexible enough to meet all of your training needs. We can even develop an online training program just for you. In many cases, Federal or State training funding may be available for qualified organizations.
