Section 1 - What is good customer service?
SECTION 1

This section looks at exactly what good customer service is. When you work in a job that requires interaction with customers, giving the best customer service you can comes with many benefits, for you personally, as well as your company as a whole. You have the power to turn their negative experience into a positive one.

Section 2 - Communicating with your customer
SECTION 2

This section will look at how good communication is key to establishing and maintaining a good relationship with your customers. It helps build rapport and establish trust, helps you clear up or avoid misunderstandings, and, most importantly, it allows you to understand exactly what your customer wants and what you can do to help them. 

Section 3 - Handling Customer Complaints
SECTION 3

In this section, we'll see how to handle a customer's complaint in a professional, understanding and empathetic way, and what you should do when emotions start to get out of hand. With these few tips and a little luck, you'll hopefully find that you can help most of the people, most of the time.

Section 4 - Room for improvement
SECTION 4

In this final section, we'll look at some of the ways you and your employers might try to continually build on past success and learn from mistakes. Employers will use various forms of customer feedback to find weak spots in the customer's experience. But it's also important that you reflect on your own performance and search for ways in which you can improve.

ABOUT THIS COURSE

Did you know that on average, a happy customer will tell up to 9 people about their experience with an organisation, whereas unhappy customers have been found to tell up to 16 people about a bad experience? 

Customer Service Training is, therefore, essential for anyone working in a customer-centric role, who frequently deals with customers. In order for many businesses to thrive, they need to ensure that the customer has the best possible experience with them. 

Working in a customer service role can mean individuals are faced with challenging problems that have to be dealt with on the spot. This training course aims to supply participants with the skills required to deal with challenging customers, provide exceptional customer service and retain customers. It also helps develop skills to appropriately deal with a range of possible situations and handle enquiries effectively while adding value to the customer's experience. 

By completing our Customer Service Training course, participants will be able to improve their service skills, regardless of whether their interaction is over the phone, via the computer or face-to-face, these skills will supply you with everything you need to provide the best experience for your customer. 

Providing excellent customer service will result in more positive reviews, returning customers and bigger, more frequent sales.

A good course if a little basic. The test could be made a little harder - some of the choices were a little 'silly' so made the correct answer very easy to pick.

The course is very helpful to my current
