For Immediate Release

The College of Continuing Education & Community Service (CCECS) at the University of Hawaiʻi at Hilo offers its final two Employment and Training Fund (ETF)-approved courses for the spring semester in Kona at the end of April and early May.

“Managing Multiple Priorities, Projects, and Deadlines” will be held on Tuesday, April 29th from 8:30 am-3:30 pm. “Dealing with Difficult & Upset People” is scheduled for Friday, May 9th from 9-11:30am. Both classes will be held at the Kuakini Tower, 75-5722 Kuakini Highway in Kailua-Kona.

The ETF Program is funded by the State Department of Labor and Industrial Relations Workforce Development Division. Its purpose is to enhance business growth and improve the long-term employability of Hawaiʻi’s workforce by providing businesses with opportunities to upgrade the skills of their employees from entry-level to top management.

As an ETF vendor, CCECS provides approved training for employees referred to the program by their employers. For qualified employers, ETF will pay half the cost of tuition, or up to $250, while the employer pays the other half along with any excess balance.

To qualify, participants must register at least two weeks prior to the start of class. For more information or to register, call 974-7664 or visit
