Customer Service
Customer service representatives are employed by many different types of companies to serve as a direct point of contact for customers. They are responsible for ensuring that their company's customers receive an adequate level of service or help with their questions and concerns. These customers may be individual consumers or other companies, and their service needs can vary considerably. The skill and professionalism of your staff can mean the difference between keeping customers for life or losing their business forever. That's why Tri-County Technical College is offering the International Customer Service Association (ICSA) Certification program.

Why Certification? 
Objective tools are an essential component for a fair and equitable assessment of skills and learning. Each module contains a sample exam to measure your retention of the material.  Optional Web-based testing is the final step to formally assess and demonstrate that you are Customer Service Certified.  After successfully completing the 6 exams, you will receive a Certificate of Completion from Tri-County Technical College and a Certificate of Completion from the International Customer Service Association (ICSA).    By becoming certified, you will gain the peace of mind that comes from knowing that you are a highly trained and certified individual able to deal with the most precious assets of business - customers!
