The Blue Collar Virtual Trade School

The Blue Collar Virtual Trade School mission

People ask why I started The Blue Collar Virtual Trade School. Quite simply there are not enough qualified people to meet job demands. How do I know? I owned a successful residential service business. Hiring qualified people was always a challenge. Now, I assist employers across the USA to find, train, and hire qualified people.
