MOHAVE COUNTY – Mohave Community College’s Workforce Excellence Series is helping
businesses and individuals polish skills that promote success in their dealings with customers
and community members. The growing popularity of the program now yields another opportunity
for involvement, as course facilitators are currently being sought to help propel Mohave
County’s workforce to the next level of service and success.
Instructors are needed for courses including Manager and Supervisor, Leadership,
Communication, Conflict Management and Resolution, Team Performance and Customer
Service. Many of these classes focus on workforce fundamentals, such as setting direction for
employees, understanding customers and how to manage arising or ongoing conflicts at work.
As the MCC series is partnering with ARIZONA@WORK to offer tuition coverage for
unemployed and underemployed residents of the region, spots are filling up fast. Instructors,
working a paid, part-time position at 19.5 hours a week, are now needed for day, evening and
weekend classes.
While many institutions require employees to fit into a rigid schedule, MCC takes a more
realistic approach. Lori Gunnette, Associate Dean, Career Training, Professional Development
and Community Education, knows that most people have full schedules throughout the day.
That’s why the College makes it a point to work with prospective facilitators and their schedules.
Vacations, seasonal preferences and more are all taken into consideration during the planning
process.
“If you have a high school diploma or GED, and professional business and industry experience
or training in the Workforce Excellence topic areas, we want you to teach for us,” said Gunnette.
“We are looking for individuals who are passionate about elevating Mohave County’s workforce
by sharing their professional expertise and industry knowledge.”
The courses themselves and the instruction they provide have already been created. That
means instructors can focus on sharing their experiences as they apply to the course and
highlighting those course topics or activities relevant to the community.

“Being an instructor is a great opportunity to share your professional knowledge and experience
with others in the community,” said Gunnette. “Our instructors constantly share that they are
proud to be part of MCC.”
