College Logo - Somerset (Square)The Pennsylvania Highlands Community College Somerset Center will be hosting a free workshop this upcoming Wednesday, October 5th, for business professionals and companies looking to enter new markets and wanting to improve customer satisfaction. This workshop, entitled Brain-Based Customer Service and Sales, will take place from 9 to 10:30am (with registration and refreshments at 8am) in the Community Room of Founder’s Hall, at 6022 Glades Pike, Somerset.

This workshop, led by John Moore of Moore Power Sales Vision, will dive into the science that reveals how the brain makes decisions, and will highlight how many customer relations and sales strategies are not aligned with the brain. It will help individuals discover how the brain decides what to buy and from whom, and participants will gain an understanding of what it takes to connect with a customer to address individual, ongoing needs and expectations.

As an added bonus, there will be a special presentation before the workshop from 8:30 to 9am on the WEDnetPA State Funding Program. This portion will cover the basics of funding to train employees on a wide range of topics and eligibility criteria.

College Logo - Somerset (Square)The Pennsylvania Highlands Community College Somerset Center has called the Georgian Place home since January of 2012. In recent years, the College has seen significant growth and, as a result, was in need of a new facility with additional space to expand its course offerings to those in Somerset and the surrounding communities.

This fall, Penn Highlands Somerset will be holding its classes in the newly renamed Somerset County Education Center at 6024 Glades Pike in Somerset. This facility was formerly known as the Allegany College of Maryland Somerset County Campus before it became open to any institution of higher learning.

Penn Highlands Somerset will house two classrooms (with one designed for distance instruction and learning), a computer lab, a science lab, a testing room, a faculty work room, and a staff suite. This will allow the College to offer degrees in Accounting, Business Management, Criminal Justice, Liberal Arts & Sciences, Psychology, and Technology Management. With the College’s move into this location, the community will begin to see program expansion and more academic paths to choose from in the coming months.

“The importance of providing additional opportunities to the Somerset area has been an ongoing discussion within Penn Highlands. This move was only natural and serves to provide extensive educational options to local residents,” stated Dr. Walter Asonevich, President of Pennsylvania Highlands Community College.

The Fall 2016 semester at Penn Highlands Somerset will begin on Monday August 29th. There is still time for those interested to enroll for classes. For information on the new facility or to enroll, contact the Somerset Center at 814.443.2500 or somerset@pennhighlands.edu.
