Beacon is proud to offer free courses to help you prepare to work in a retail environment.

Our free Cashier Training course is 3-weeks long, and offered in partnership with the United Way. You’ll learn how to operate a cash register and point-of-sale machine. You’ll also strengthen your customer service skills and learn how to be safe in the workplace.

The course is usually held at our Pandora Avenue Thrift Shop a few times a year. For more information, please contact 250 388-3500; tfarrell@beaconcs.ca
