Students with customer service experience share their stories and insights, while everyone reflects on what is at the heart of effective communication and whether this message is similar with their own ideas and ambitions. Oral practice sessions and consistent classroom interaction, bring the topic to life. The module is primarily geared to students with little or no experience in Canadian customer service work or those who wish to practice and improve their communication for success in the workplace. Module 2: Food & Beverage The key advantage of effective customer service in the restaurant and bar industry hinges on the ability to communicate clearly and professionally in a positive and friendly manner. For any ESL student, this module delivers skills, tools, and confidence building in abundance. Real communication goes hand in hand with cultural awareness: without the latter, the former will simply not happen. This module welds the required knowledge in the food and beverage industry and command of language required, giving students an exhilarating sense of empowerment. Within this module, students will learn Serve-It-Right, an integral component program required by most restaurant, hotel and bar employers Module 3: Job Search / Career tools Whether the student is currently employed in the customer service industry within Canada, or is looking for work, or possibly interested in upgrading their job, this module will provide a variety of skill development and practical advice in job and career pursuits.

This module also includes a complete lesson of the knowledge required to earn one’s FoodSafe BC certificate with an option to pay additionally for and take the FoodSafe BC exam in class. Module 5: Communications The module focuses on those areas of communication most relevant to customer service students. Few employees in the customer service field can expect to succeed without at least a basic understanding of how to communicate within a country’s or company’s culture. Because of the nature of the material involved, the module tends to provide a major boost to students’ writing, listening, and speaking skills from getting started, to communicating on the job and on to working relationships. Module 6: Tourism & Hospitality Learning what one needs to know and practicing the skills required to succeed in an entry level customer service position within the tourist industry is the focus of this module.

This module also incorporates a field trip to the Vancouver Tourist office and a variety of tourist sites with Vancouver as part of the student’s classroom research. Module 7: Customer Satisfaction: Leadership & Motivation Leadership can be defined as the ability to inspire support and confidence of people who are needed to accomplish common goals. This module not only extends the principles and practices of customer service, but also serves as a channel for those who are ambitious to grow throughout their work and take on more supervisory functions. Case studies, surveys, self-assessment quizzes, and skill building exercises will lead the students through this journey of career growth. A very interactive and personal self-examination module.
