Red River College launches Empower Training Series: applied learning for everyone in every organization

September 21, 2018

These words from Confucius ring true: “I hear and I forget. I see and I remember. I do and I understand.”

Learning is a continuous and fascinating journey, and the pinnacle of learning is the application of that newfound knowledge, putting what we have learned into action.

Learning does not stop after graduation; in fact, learning becomes even more prevalent once we enter the workforce and continuously evolves as businesses and industries change according to the demands of our local, national and global landscapes. The question that begs to be asked is: are all organizations equipped with the resources to effectively compete in these environments within a culture that breeds a strong, competent team?

Red River College (RRC) understands the importance of continuous learning, whether one is a student, a working professional or a skilled tradesperson. The College also realizes the challenges that exist when resources, in any capacity, are limited and effective training may not be available. In recognizing this need in the market, solutions can be found in RRC’s highly specialized abilities to “help your organization leverage its constrained resources to develop a culture of unrestrained innovation,” says Bill Rutherford, Corporate Solutions Manager at Red River College. It’s the perfect marriage of sharing educational resources to empower individuals to enhance and improve their organizations, here in our community and beyond!

The excitement that has fuelled this idea is now the strength behind the launch of the Empower Training Series. There is no set definition of the Empower Training Series and that’s the beauty of it. This series is completely customizable to enhance your team’s development by providing applied solutions to address emerging business trends.
