Quite simply, there are not enough young people entering the skilled trades. HVAC, plumbing and electrical careers ~ these are the essential jobs that keep our country running smoothly. My years of experience as a trades business owner and then as a consultant to employers across the US has shown me how difficult it is to find and retain qualified people.
Today more than 1.4 million jobs are available and unfilled. Demand is expected to grow. Baby boomers are retiring from these jobs, making the gap in skilled labor even worse.
Learning a skilled trade promises to be one of the most reliable means of making a living — particularly in light of today's high unemployment levels. Our online training school prepares people for work in the trades. Train remotely with virtual learning.
There are 4 key trends that underscore the tremendous opportunity available to people interested in skilled trades careers:
- Skilled trades - or essential services like HVAC, plumbing, electrical and solar - are more important than ever.
- Online training can bridge the skills gap, producing qualified workers in a faster timeframe. The labor shortage is real. Twice as many skilled workers are retiring than are entering the HVAC, plumbing and electrical workforce.
- Technology (virtual learning, 3D simulations) accelerates learning and is putting people to work faster than ever before.
- In the new post-COVID world, every aspect of training and service delivery will need to change to adapt to new distancing protocols. Many trades will have to change the way they operate, placing a heightened focus on health safety and the incorporation of new skill sets. The HVAC sector gives us an easy example to understand as technicians make modifications to existing ventilation systems to mitigate the spread of viruses.
