Our Client Success

Kings Co Human Services Training Partnership

The COS Training Resource Center has thoroughly enjoyed providing workplace training for employees at Kings County’s Human Services Agency, providing instruction in business writing, communication skills, Excel (intermediate and advanced) and One Note.

“Microsoft Excel – basic, intermediate and advanced – has truly helped our staff,” said Elaine Tinajero, staff support specialist for the Human Services Agency, which has about 400 employees. “It’s broadened their skill level. It’s paid off for us. We’re a fairly large agency with 400 employees and we’re constantly bringing on people who vary in their level of proficiency when it comes to Excel, so when you get a new employee who isn’t used to it, it’s nice to put them in the training”.

“They (Training Resource Center) are able to adjust to some of our demands,” Wood said. “Things change for us, and they aren’t selling us a one-size-fits-all. They’re tailoring it and working with us.”

“In the central valley, we don’t have very many training organizations that are able to offer us what we need”, Tinajero states. “But with COS they are able to go one step further where they give us the basic outline of what the offer in a training and from there they allow us to run with it.”
