Healthcare/Hospitality Training Programs

The PLUS Company was the first to open Project SEARCH in New England at St. Joseph Hospital in Nashua, New Hampshire in 2009. Project SEARCH is a 10 month employment training program for students with developmental disabilities and acquired brain disorders. The program offers a seamless combination of classroom instruction, career exploration, and transferable-skills job training. Interns train in various departments including: Diagnostic Imaging, Sterile Processing, Cafe and Dish Room, Endoscopy, Materials Management, Environmental Services, Surgical Services, Infection Control, Cancer Center, Sleep Center and Patient/Nursing Floors.

We continue to develop new programs based on the local labor market, client interest and employer needs. We have expanded this combined classroom and on-the-job training model to various sectors or industries with programs such as STRIDE in partnership with Lowell General Hospital and Sodexo. This program is shorter in length at 18 weeks but focuses on developing soft and hard skills that students take with them to either work directly in the Healthcare field or elsewhere such as Hospitality or Food & Beverage.

Retail Training Program

Another sector based training program that we operate in partnership with Marshalls/TJ Maxx in both Nashua, New Hampshire and Tewksbury, Massachusetts is our Retail Training program. This program is for students interested in pursuing careers in the Retail field such as Customer Service, Sales, Backroom Processing, Inventory Support, Loss Prevention Techniques, and other exciting positions in small and big box retail stores.

Career Assessment Program

Some folks aren't sure about what career paths they'd like to follow, or perhaps they have not had enough exposure to different occupations. No worries, we have the Career Assessment Program which creates a "career road map" for individuals through a series of assessments/testing, classroom-work, informational interviewing, and by performing situational assessments on-site with real jobs, real work. By performing these activities we then paint a picture for the individual which outlines recommendations for either further research, exploring educational opportunities and training or establishing a solid base-line of work or volunteer experience based on the local labor market, individual's interests, and other factors.

Point-of-Sale System Training

We provide Point-of-Sale (POS) training through Retail Store Live, a cloud-based POS system that resembles the technology used by most retailers. In this training program, we cover the basics of the technology used, retail common practices, customer service and other relevant topics.
