Resource Training and Solutions is Moving!
Thanks to your support, we’ve grown out of our current space, the Cold Spring Center, where we’ve been happily housed for 17 years. During that time, we’ve adapted the facility several times to facilitate growth. We’ve also cultivated a relationship with another organization dedicated to serving lifelong learners, the College of St. Scholastica over the last decade. We’re elated to have them join us at our new leased location, 137 23rd Street South in Sartell (across Highway 15 from Sam's Club and Wal-Mart).
Here's the new location from a satellite view (click for a larger view).
The Sartell location was chosen after an extensive area-wide two-year search. The decision was based on several factors; the area’s growth, its convenience, road changes nearby that will ease traffic flow in the area and its proximity to one of the main arteries in the region, Highway 15.
Our collaboration with the College of St. Scholastica
is sustainable and beneficial because it allows us to create a training facility that will benefit us both, and makes us ideal roommates, with the majority of our business occurring during the day and more of their business occurring in the evening. Additionally, teaming with them reduces our total cost for the facility, which is being built by Sauk Rapids-based Strack Companies. Strack projects you may be familiar with include the JC Penney renovation at Crossroads Mall, Midsota Clinic and the CentraCare Health plaza, among others.
What to expect
What our move means to you is an environment more conducive to learning, with bigger training spaces, more training space availability, bigger bathrooms, a convenient location, and a growing team more well-equipped to provide you the exceptional customer service you’ve grown to expect from Resource Training and Solutions.
Business as usual...for now
It will be business as usual for the next several months, and all program offerings through summer 2013 will take place at our current location. Look for updates to our September 2013 relocation in future editions of the Communicator.
Until then, thank you for helping us grow so much that this change became necessary. We look forward to having you celebrate with us at our 2013 customer appreciation event!
