Most businesses offer opportunities to employees looking to add to their skills by doign extra training.
An obvious benefit of additional training for your job is a higher salary. As you add skills to your repertoire you are able to handle a myriad of situations. Most companies will compensate eager employees who want to improve their skills and grow in the industry knowledge.
Possibly you don’t want to stay at your job forever, but getting extra traning while you are there is a great resume builder.

When applying for future jobs this initiative on your part will show potential employers that you are an asset to the workforce and willing to work hard for your job.
