BCTI has announced a $10,000 contribution for desktop application training to Sandvik Mining and Construction Co., Bristol, Va.
BCTI is providing Sandvik employees desktop computer training, which includes Windows 7, Microsoft Word, and Microsoft Excel to assist them in finding new jobs as quickly as possible.
“Giving back to the community is important to us as a company,” said BCTI CEO Chase Boles. “Contributing training resources is a means for BCTI to make a difference in the local community.”
Adding to the employee skill set is important to Sandvik as the company is moving operations due to market conditions and corporate restructuring.
