Smart Offers Testing for Businesses

For several years Smart has been assisting Trinity River Lumber with their employee recruitment and pre-screening needs. Smart Business Center assists with collecting resumes for the business. For a small fee to Trinity River Lumber, Smart assists in helping administer and proctor the Adult Basic Learning Examination (ABLE). These evaluations cover basic skills in Reading Comprehension, Problem Solving, and Math computations. Equivalency grade levels are determined and the results are then provided to the employer to review. Trinity River Lumber utilizes this screening to find the best candidates for their business.

Tops Supermarket has also taken advantage of these services. Smart collects resumes for the employer and also tests candidates with the ABLE testing. This has helped improve the quality of candidates for both their Weaverville and Redding locations.

For more information on how Smart Business Resource Center can assist you please contact the local Smart office.

Trinity Hospital-Certified Nursing Assistant Program

Mountain Communities Healthcare District-Trinity Hospital and Smart Business Resource Center started a Certified Nursing Assistant Worksite Training Program. Trinity Hospital provided the class room/ work site training for CNA’s which started on September 30, 2013 and will be completed on January 10, 2014. A total of 10 participants were enrolled in this
customized Worksite Training. The three month training program has been a combination of hands on training in the acute care hospital setting, and instructor guided class room training. The participants were scheduled for a test day of November 23rd but due to a documentation error, testing was rescheduled to January 11, 2014. Smart extended the Work Site Training to January 10th to gain more hands on experience while awaiting the test day. Of the 10 participants that started the program, 7 will be eligible to take the California CNA Certification test when the training is complete and will be entering into unsubsidized employment at Trinity Hospital contingent upon their certification. 3 students were not able to continue with the program due to medical/personal issues out of their control, however are currently working within the hospital in other divisions and have maintained employment.

Dollar General

Dollar General opened their doors in December 2013, but before they could open they needed to find their team of employees. Smart Business Resource center partnered with Dollar General to recruit candidates for their new location. Smart collected resumes and assisted with online applications for numerous clients. Smart hosted the Dollar General Hiring Fair on November 1st, 2013 from 10am to 3pm. Smart staff assisted with organizing the interviews for Dollar General staff to be able to conduct one on one interviews with over 50 applicants. 15+ people were hired, including the 2 assistant managers and sales leads.
