Customer Service Reception PRO course Fast Facts:
Adapted for online training!
This course has been specifically adapted to be delivered online with trainee engagement and learning outcomes enhanced by the short bursts of interactive and engaging development methods.
The online course is delivered via Zoom which is easily accessible to anyone that has an internet browser.

Who is this course suitable for?
The Customer Service Reception PRO course has been designed to help frontline employees who are already working in a role that interacts with customers and who have some experience talking to customers (as we will use their current challenges and examples as part of the learnings).
The 3 x 3-hour sessions have been designed to be delivered in a structured manner enabling students to learn and apply their new skills in between the different sessions.
The skills we teach are applicable to all industries, products and services!
Typical roles suitable for this course include:
- Customer service staff.
- Office/administration employees.
- Receptionists/personal assistants.
- Front-of-house staff (gyms, restaurants etc.).
- Medical/Dental/Veterinary practice staff.
- Warehouse/logistics employees.
- Retail workers.
The Customer Service Reception PRO course is designed to first influence the psychology of participants to start viewing customer service from a customer perspective rather than their own internal, operational mindset.
Then the service experience model that forms the basis of the program, ‘The 5 Degrees of Customer Experience’, is introduced in a sequenced manner that builds competency and new habits in a staged approach.
We’ve also included a module to master the skills of handling difficult customers that will not only reduce anxiety in your staff in how to handle those tough situations, it will also help your business by reducing the number of frustrated customers.
There’s plenty of role-playing and practice built in to ensure your employees can put their new skills to work with the practice conducted in a safe, fun and welcoming online environment.
At the end of the course, trainees will be provided with a certificate of achievement and, most importantly, be empowered with new skills that will help them succeed in their role and help improve the outcomes for your business.

Public and Private course delivery options
The Customer Service Reception PRO course is delivered online via Zoom and is offered both publicly (anyone can purchase a ticket) and privately (just for your employees) with the differences outlined below.
The Customer Service Reception PRO course is delivered as 3 x 3-hour sessions, enabling employees to upskill with minimal impact on your operations.
The times and dates are fixed to enable you to plan ahead, and being a public course, there will be others on the course providing a great way to learn and share experiences (and know you aren’t alone in the challenges dealing with customers!)
We typically run this course once a month enabling you to spread the training out for multiple sessions to reduce the impact on your operations.
If you would like to have more flexibility on the dates and times, and only have your employees on the course, please refer to our private training options.
See upcoming available dates at the bottom of this page!
Whilst the public courses can be a great way to interact with others and are perfect for small numbers, sometimes you need more flexibility with the dates and times or you’d like the benefits of training larger groups of employees within your business, as well as keeping conversations “in-house” if that is important to you.
The private course option is the same course, but with the dates and times to suit you and it’s only for your employees.
And for groups of 6 or more employees, it is often more cost-effective than our public courses.
We are also pleased to offer this course onsite at your premises delivered as a one-day course*
*additional travel costs may apply
