AccessPoint RI & CVS Training Initiative
8 weeks of job training in an innovative setting!

Are you looking for work but haven’t yet landed a job?

Sometimes it takes both training and work experience to open the door to employment. At our training center we provide both training and real-life work experience.

We’ll help you:

  • Gain the competitive edge for your job search
  • Learn valuable, industry-standard job skills
  • Benefit from training adapted to your learning style

Through our retail training center, we’ll support you to prepare for a retail or customer service position. Throughout Rhode Island there’s a great demand for workers who can fill these entry-level positions. These jobs can also be a stepping stone to many career paths.

Here’s what your experience will look like.

  • Mock CVS Store – You’ll learn and practice customer service and retail skills in a mock CVS store that is outfitted with the equipment & layout of a traditional CVS Pharmacy.
  • CVS Externships - You’ll then gain real-world experience in a CVS store.

Throughout these 8 weeks, we’ll help you to prepare for your place in the workforce.
