College's Training Program Fits Needs of Area Businesses

When Trimm Inc. of Libertyville wanted to win International Standards Organization 9000 international quality certification, consulting charges were as high as $70,000 to $100,000.

"For a small company, that was a lot of money," said Suhas Pawar, Trimm's quality assurance manager and management representative for the ISO 9000 project.

Enter the College of Lake County's Corporate Services department (formerly called Business and Industry Training). Trimm wasn't the only Lake County business seeking the certification so that it could sell on the world market.

Corporate Services put together a joint training program that costs Trimm about $10,000.

"Small industries can share costs," Pawar said. "That is economical."

CLC's Corporate Services, a department under the Community Education and Economic Development Division, is becoming known for innovative solutions like that. In fact, since it began a push about a year ago to aggressively market its training programs throughout the county, it has doubled its clients, said Daniel Russert, CLC Corporate Services director.

The department primarily offers businesses and industries in Lake County in-house training tailored to their needs.

For instance, IMC Holdings in Grayslake, a mid-sized manufacturing company, needed to train employees on programmable computer numeric controls.

"We were having a hard time recruiting people with that skill, so we decided to recruit from our own employees," said Anita Bordeaux, IMC human resources manager. "CLC tailored a curriculum to our needs and we are very pleased."

Bordeaux's experience is the norm. Russert or one of his staff members meets with company officials to assess requirements, then modifies or creates a curriculum to meet those needs.
