The recent coronavirus pandemic has created uncertainty for businesses seeking to expand their products or services to customers outside the US - and for understandable reasons. The professionals working at the PCC SBDC and Global Trade Center continue to monitor all developments as it relates to small business and will contribute that expertise to the Global Trade Management Series for the foreseeable future.
The national coordinated response to the Coronavirus Pandemic has led to many challenges across the American workforce - and the impact to PCC has been no different. Fortunately, our Professional Development and Training team team is able to adapt, holding many of our programs remotely (including Customized programming) during spring term. To make it simpler for prospective students to see which classes are available online, we're creating a two-part blog series listing all remote spring learning opportunities.

If you've ever been to the hospital, you've likely dealt with a patient access specialist. Patient access specialists (PAS) are typically the first point of contact. Their job is to help, direct, and comfort the patient. Often, a PAS will be responsible for scheduling, billing, and taking you to your appointment.
