Walmart graduates & celebrates new training center


Walmart Training Academy 2   WEA celebrated with its member Walmart at a different ribbon cutting of sorts.
   It was a Walmart graduation held at its new Vancouver Walmart Training Academy.
  The Academy is part of a $2.7 billion investment and one of 200 Walmart training academies expected to open across the country this year, giving employees hands-on training and learning experiences.
   Walmart recognizes graduation rates and career-technical education are important issues, and it sees how retail careers can offer individuals stability, flexibility, and career growth.
   The new academy will help department managers and hourly supervisors from around the region gain both core retail skills and learn department-specific knowledge as well as leadership, merchandising, operations, and customer service.
