Career Development Classes


Rising the retail career ladder takes a special skill set. At Frontline’s career training classes, retail workers develop the skills they need to advance in the industry.

Frontline helps retail workers advance in the industry through our weekly career development programs that train workers in sector-based skills and worker rights. We are partnering with the CUNY School of Professional Studies to develop a comprehensive retail certificate program.

Frontline holds certified Visual Merchandising and Customer Service Training courses every month. Students attend four days of four-hour classes to receive a Certificate of Completion from La Guardia Community College. We are dedicated to creating standardized career development for retail workers, and continue to branch out with new classes such as Blogging.

Every few months, Frontline holds General Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) training and CPR classes, at which retail workers can earn CPR and OSHA certification.
