IDB-BISEW has initiated a pilot project for training of visually impaired men and women to create their employment opportunities in Telemarketing Service Sectors through the institute of Hazrat Mohammad SAW.

Offering impeccable customer service is critical for any organization or company hoping to create and maintain a loyal customer base. 4 months Call Centre Telemarketing Training for Visually Impaired Men & Women imparts a vast skill set upon its participants so that, upon completion, they are prepared to take on the role of call center customer service representative with confidence. Organized into 6 components, the three months training covers the following topics: use of IP telephony, customer service, soft skills, communication, relationship building, sales and marketing, operations, human resources, and Microsoft Outlook, Word and Excel programs.

The pilot project will play a significant role towards the generation of employment and ultimately the alleviation of poverty for the visually impaired poor men and women. IDB-BISEW is sincerely committed to making this project a successful one.
