Lake County BCC University Information
Lake County BCC University

The Human Resources Department is committed to providing training and development opportunities for all Lake County BCC employees. Our goal is to offer a variety of professional development programs for employees, supervisors and leaders. 

The purpose of training is to enable participants to reach their optimum job performance through learning and growth opportunities. A work force that utilizes and prospers from these opportunities is strategic for organizations in today’s fast-paced environment. All employees can capitalize on their own performance potential by taking the responsibility for self-development. Courses offered through the Lake County BCC University Catalog empower the employee to learn and develop both personally and professionally. 

Catalog course offerings are divided into three learning areas: 

  • Employee Development – These programs are targeted for all employees, and include both required and optional learning opportunities. 

  • Supervisor Development – The programs designated for Supervisor Development are aimed at providing practical employee management skills and policy/procedure updates for supervisors with direct reports. These programs are intended for current supervisors and employees being prepared for upcoming supervisory openings.

  • Leadership Development – Leadership Development programs offer interactive opportunities for employees to acquire and practice new leadership skills and thought processes. The target audience for this learning area is supervisors, leaders, and employees with potential for supervisory and leadership positions.

Registration for any of these programs is easily available at the Online Training Calendar.

Employee Development

Employee Development is essential for personal, professional and organizational growth. It is the County’s intent that the employees of Lake County BCC are able to enhance their own development through a variety of learning opportunities.

The courses offered through the Lake County BCC University Catalog are a combination of required training programs necessary to function effectively as a Lake County employee, and other supplementary programs for personal and professional development. Optional classes include opportunities to learn more about selected benefits, professional growth experiences, and a wide array of Wellness topics.

Supervisor Development

The Supervisor Development training programs target learning experiences for supervisory employees with direct reports and for those individuals who have been identified with potential for future supervisory openings.

The programs offered in the Lake County BCC University Catalog include practical techniques and instruction on employee supervision with emphasis on Lake County policies and procedures. The classes are geared to benefit experienced, recently promoted and aspiring supervisors. The core of the Supervisor Development training program is a four-part series on Performance Management.
