Nashville State Community College    


NSCC / Sage Partnership

SAGE Nashville State Community College (NSCC) and The Sage Group, LLC are pleased to announce a new program, whereby students, who are enrolled at NSCC and who successfully complete Sage courses can now receive college credit toward a degree program at Nashville State. The Sage courses must have been evaluated by the National College Credit Recommendation Service and have received college-level credit recommendations.

The goal of both The Sage Group and Nashville State is to assist students in developing the skills, knowledge and attitudes necessary for effectiveness in their careers.

The Sage Group has been providing workforce-training services for many years. In 1988, the company was founded as the Pace Group and established its reputation for excellent customer service and relationship building. In 1998 after two acquisition processes, the company was bought by the current ownership in Nashville, Tennessee and became The Sage Group, LLC.

The Sage Group currently has eight offices nationwide serving Fortune 500 clients. The company employs more than 150 facilitators, located nationwide, who deliver training courses either on-site or in convenient locations.
