One certification that focuses on soft and career readiness skills is the Communication Skills for Business (CSB) Certification from Certiport.
In this article, we’ll answer the two most common questions teachers ask us about the Communication Skills for Business certification:
What do students need to know for the Communication Skills for Business certification?
How do I prepare students for the Communication Skills for Business certification?
Understanding this will help you decide whether or not the Communication Skills for Business Certification will make a good addition to your program.
1. What Do Students Need to Know for the Communication Skills for Business Certification?
In today’s workplace, 21st Century skills are crucial for success. And while there are twelve 21st Century skills in total, the four C’s are often considered to be the most important - critical thinking, creativity, collaboration, and communication.
How can I ensure my students have the knowledge and skills needed to earn the certification?
Certiport provides a 3-hour courseware through LearnKey specifically designed to help prepare students for the CSB certification. In addition, GMetrix provides Communication Skills for Business practice tests to help students prepare for exam day.
These Communication Skills for Business test prep materials are a great way to prepare your students for the certification.
However they won’t help you build a comprehensive curriculum that will enable you to teach other business and career readiness skills.
That’s why so many teachers use a combination of test prep materials along with a more robust business and career curriculum, like our Business&ITCenter21 system.
Business&ITCenter21 is used by thousands of teachers like you to save time with planning and grading while maximizing student understanding and engagement.
It contains more than 600 hours of curriculum content to help you teach a wide variety of skills and concepts such as communication, professionalism, digital citizenship, public speaking, job seeking skills, and more.
