Post-secondary education is coming to the Fort.
NAIT is partnering with the Fort Saskatchewan Chamber of Commerce to bring business development courses to the city.
The classes consist of Effective Leadership on May 16 and 17, Customer Experience Strategies on May 30 and 31 and Performance Management on June 13 and 14.
The initiative has been in the works for more than two years.
"It's part of our mandate to enhance the business community," said Rene Holinski, event coordinator at the Chamber of Commerce. "We know business development is so crucial."
The decision to bring the classes to the Fort came after an economic development survey revealed a desire for more education opportunities in the business community.
The courses will cost $250 for those who register through the Chamber and are open to the general public.
Those who attend the courses are eligible to receive credit towards a certification in business fundamentals.
The first two courses will be held at the Dow Centennial Centre and the third will be held at West River's Edge.
Holinski hopes that more courses will be offered in the future.
"Our hope is that it would be an ongoing partnership (with NAIT)," she said.
