Virtanza Vocational University Announces New Member Company – IGS Energy
DUBLIN, Ohio, August 24, 2015 — Virtanza Vocational University, an interactive 10-week sales training and certification program, recently announced the addition of IGS Energy to its constantly growing list of member companies. Graduates of VVU’s programs, which span several proficiency levels, will now be eligible for employment at IGS Energy, one of the largest independent suppliers of natural gas and electricity in the U.S. IGS joins a long list of member companies that hire graduates of the program. “We are excited to connect graduates with this great opportunity,” said Debbie Holzkamp. “IGS Energy is a great company that will open all kinds of new doors for our students.”
Since its inception, Virtanza has certified more than 1,700 graduates of its affordable, high-quality sales training programs. One of the most distinctive things about the Virtanza Vocational University program is that graduates are provided with job placement services upon completion. “It’s our way of showing graduates that in just 10 weeks, they can become more marketable job candidates,” added Holzkamp.
VVU assesses students to determine which sales program is the right fit for them. From there, students enroll for a very modest amount of tuition and then complete a rigorous 10-week program. The program includes online and classroom components. Along the way, students receive crucial sales process training. They can also complete and earn their MS Office certification, which demonstrates to employers that they are proficient with this important software. “Upon completing the 10-week program, our graduates are ready to find employment with first-rate employers like IGS Energy. Not only that, but we actively help them find work,” said IGS Executive.
Virtanza is currently preparing for an upcoming 10-week training program that begins on September 25. Many spots have been filled already, and the few that remain won’t last for long. “The job market has improved considerably, but employers like IGS Energy prefer candidates with marketable sales and computer skills,” said Shannon Schilling, HR Manager for IGS Energy. After successfully completing the four-part process, graduates receive their Microsoft Office Specialist certifications as well as a special sales certification from VVU. The program then helps job seekers find employment with its many member companies.
“We urge anyone who is interested in our program and in seeking employment with IGS Energy or another of our great member companies to enroll as soon as possible,” said Holzkamp. Prospective students can get more information from the VVU website at virtanzavu.com, which is also where they can register for the September 24 program or for other programs. “We’re excited about welcoming IGS Energy into our exclusive group of member companies offering jobs to our graduates,” said Holzkamp. “IGS has more than 10 openings to fill, and those who complete this upcoming program will be eligible for consideration.”
The Virtanza Vocational University operates under the leadership of Debbie Holzkamp, Founder and President of HDS Premier Consulting, and Sabrina Crow, Chief Strategy Officer of HDS Premier Consulting. This boutique management consulting company is headquartered in Orange County, California.
