PWDA is partnering again with TAD Grants to offer the Certified Business Services Consultant™ (CBSC) Training. Unlike other business services training, this is intended to provide practical application for professionals engaged in working with employers on a daily basis. Each step of the process is intended to provide attendees with a clear and defined process that can be replicated with consistency and efficacy.

  • Individuals that work with employers and their talent/human resource needs
  • PA CareerLink(R) Business Service Team Members 
  • Workforce Development professionals (ranging from executives to front-line) 
  • Education & Training Staff and Administrators, including those focused on workforce development 
  • Career & Technical Educators 
  • Apprenticeship and Work-Based Learning Professionals 
  • Economic Development, Chamber, and Industry Organization representatives 


Attendees will learn 

  • The four phases of business services and how they relate and build upon each other 
  • The fundamentals and value of marketing, branding, and messaging 
  • How to develop and effectively use tools to evaluate the needs of businesses
  • How to develop creative and effective solutions for business 
  • The best practices for maintaining long-term customer relationships

Those that successfully complete the training and demonstrate their competence through their documented application of knowledge will earn their certification while raising the professional standards for Business Services across the country.
