Keeping up office skills for trade based professionals

My very good friend is a skilled plumber. He works hard every day doing something that I am clueless about past turning off the water when the toilet overflows. He also has a business degree that he puts to use daily running his own company. I am constantly in awe of how many things he juggles at once. One of the things that keeps him moving forward and succeeding is learning new technology.  He understands the importance of the latest accounting software as well as mastering the art of social media. Those skilled in labor have apprenticed and studied and had real world, practical experience in their chosen field. That kind of experience can’t truly be taught in an online course. At the same time, it is recommended that those in a trade field keep their computer skills up to date for the future should they choose to retire from their field or change careers.

And that’s where we come in.

Online education allows everyone to learn a skill that can advance their career whether they are working on a construction site or in the office. It is a level playing field. From electricians to engineers, the field of e-learning offers everyone at every level an opportunity to learn.  And we make it simple with our easy to follow videos and skilled instructors. From the most basic of programs to the highly advanced, to business skills and even every day corporate focused tasks. By staying up to date with relevant business programs and practices, everyone in almost every field can succeed in a career change or shift.

Listen, I’ve done the “do-it-yourself” route more than once and several times been somewhat successful however, when it comes to wiring light switches or nailing on shingles, I know where to go. We value those in the trades more than we can say.  Those kinds of skills literally build the foundation of our lives. And we want to make sure that you can be successful at any point in your career so we offer a free 10 day trial, and a by the minute or business subscription. There is nothing holding you back from learning all you can!

Be brave, be awesome and smile whenever possible,
Kristen Teixeira
