Gardner-Webb University and Walmart Distribution Center in Shelby recently formalized a partnership that will allow more training for Walmart employees.

The management training for the employees will be provided through the University’s Professional and Continuing Education (PACE) program.

The PACE program offers specific, non-credit courses to enhance the skill levels of professionals.

“The business school is excited about this partnership, and we look forward to developing the relationship further,” Mischia Taylor, dean and professor of marketing, said in a press release. “I want to thank everyone who helped to create this joint venture.”

The courses are taught by faculty and is based on current trends and research.

The face-to-face classes begin January 20th at the Distribution Center and will meet for seven weeks, the press release said.

Upon completion employees will receive certificates from the training.
