A healthy education environment is vital to successful learning. Assuring that every student has an educational experience that enables her or him to flourish is a guiding value for the instructors at Virtanza. Virtanza is committed to fostering an online learning environment free of harassment.

The “Me, too!” movement that has swept the country has created even greater awareness of the need for inclusive environments that are free of harassment in any form. At Virtanza, instructors and students agree to standards of behavior that support a healthy education environment.  This helps guarantee each student’s freedom to learn.

The school’s policy states that “Verbal or written conduct that is unwelcome, or that denigrates or shows hostility or aversion toward an individual . . .  will not be tolerated.”

Learning from others who are different fosters healthy work environment

“When people feel free to bring their whole selves to school or work, it enriches the outcome for everyone,” says Debbie Holzkamp, CEO and founder of Virtanza. “Experiencing different perspectives and ideas in an atmosphere that is safe and supportive is what quality education is all about.”

Virtanza offers a 5-week, instructor-led virtual training program in the consultative sales method. Students who successfully complete the course earn certification as professional sales consultants. With coaching, resume workshops and plenty of support and advice, they become qualified candidates for open positions in sales in their communities. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, a third of available jobs are sales jobs – and there are not enough qualified candidates to meet employer needs.

Sales training fills gap for employers who need top sales reps

“We’re filling that gap with qualified professionals who know and practice a collaborative approach to sales,” Holzkamp says. “Our program models a constructive approach to relationships that create winning solutions for employers and their customers.”
