Customer Service And Sales Certification

Students practice speaking, listening, reading, and writing with their peers under the guidance of the teacher. Classes are small to allow for active participation. Pretests are given and instruction is based upon the student’s level of English proficiency.  This is a wonderful opportunity to experience a variety of cultures. Morning, afternoon and evening classes are available with three levels (Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced).  We look forward to welcoming you into our program. 

For Fall 2020 the Registration Paperwork will be mailed to each student and they return it in the self-addressed-stamped-envelope. A copy of your Official I.D. is required (passport, license, state or federal ID).

Students must be 17 years of age or older. Classes are offered free to students in our 14-town region.

For more information, please contact Dr. Claudia Nunn, Regional Coordinator (ESL and GED programs) at VRABE Regional Adult Based Education. Email claudia.nunn@vernonct.org or call 860-870-6060.
