About Us

Selsius™ History

Selsius™ Corporate and Career Training is the business and industry center for Southwestern Illinois College. Established in 1987 as the Business Assistance Center for Belleville Area College, it was later renamed the Center for Training Innovations (CTI). The center was founded to help local businesses adapt to changing technologies, to stay competitive, and to assist displaced workers. We continue that work today.

A New Name

Selsius™ Corporate & Career Training

In 2007, the center was renamed Selsius™ Corporate & Career Training. The change came as the center continued to serve the needs of the region’s business community from within the SWIC campus in Belleville and off-campus, but with a newer and more expanded approach. The new name was derived from a best-selling book, “212. . .The Extra Degree”.

Why Selsius™?

212 Degrees

The premise is that at 211 degrees, water is hot. At 212 degrees, it boils. Steam creates momentum. That one degree of extra effort has an impact on your bottom line. That’s what Selsius™ does — helps your company get that one degree of extra effort and improvement in your performance and bottom line, through the improvement of your employees’ skills.
