JANUARY 3, 2019 – BONITA SPRINGS, FLA –Florida SouthWestern State College (FSW) will hold a ribbon cutting ceremony, opening the doors to its fifth location, the FSW Corporate Training Center, at 9:30 a.m. on Monday, Jan. 14. The FSW Corporate Training Center is located at 27400 Riverview Center Blvd., Suite 2, Bonita Springs.
The FSW Corporate Training Center will provide a centralized location for FSW’s corporate training initiatives, the Florida Flex Quick Response Training (QRT) and the Incumbent Worker Training (IWT) grants. It will also be the focal point for FSW’s customized business training programs.
“Employee and workforce training is an essential part of economic development and provides a significant positive financial impact for our region and the state,” said Dr. Robert R. Jones, vice president for Economic Development and External Affairs. “This funding not only directly benefits the companies receiving training funds, but results in a local economic benefit as well.”
“We are thrilled to welcome FSW to the Bonita Springs community,” said Tiffany Esposito, president, Bonita Springs Area Chamber of Commerce. “While we have benefited from a regional partnership with FSW for many years, this new, central location will give the business community access to unique education and training opportunities. The corporate training center adds to the economic development incentives we offer in the region and will allow us to continue to grow and strengthen the business community throughout Southwest Florida.”
Presently, FSW’s corporate partnerships span the southwest Florida region with nearby Hertz and HERC, Arthrex to the south, and Cheney Brothers to the north. The Bonita Springs location was chosen because of its accessibility and proximity to US 41.
“With a majority of businesses we serve being located within 20-30 miles of Bonita Springs, the new location provides easy access to meeting space in a corporate setting, and allows for more Southwest Florida businesses to take advantage of our corporate training programs,” Dr. Jones said.
