The Fernie Chamber of Commerce is pleased to announce that five virtual Fernie Ambassador Program sessions are scheduled for this fall. The Fernie Ambassador Program is a great and cost-effective opportunity for frontline staff to brush up on their customer service skills, as well as their product knowledge of all things Fernie. The Fernie Ambassador Program was founded in 2015 by the Fernie Chamber and is a well-recognized program among local employers. Completion of the Fernie Ambassador Program is great to have on any job seeker’s resume when looking for jobs in Fernie.
