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
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”.
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.
Our mission is to help your organization improve profitability and protect your workforce investment by developing your most important resource — your employees. We provide training, skills assessments, needs analysis, pre-hire testing, consulting, computer lab rentals, training video development and other resources specific to the needs of our clients and their industries.
Training for You
Our training includes leadership for supervisors and managers, professional development for all employees, computer skills, industrial skills, project management, Lean/Six Sigma, and OSHA training. Formats include instructor-led, online or a blend of both, depending on your company’s needs.
Selsius™ serves hundreds of companies and thousands of individuals annually. We enjoy a high percentage of repeat business because we deliver:
- Customized solutions that address your organization’s needs
