Training for Better Contractors

We were tired of boring training videos for contractors that were created by people who, well, weren’t contractors. They weren’t the ones doing the work.

We noticed that there was little engagement from employees. These videos were so painful to watch that many let them run in the background. This led us to want to create a training program that is not only engaging but also relevant.

We believe that the best and elite companies in the contractor space are the ones that invest in their employees and their business. We created our contractor program to help businesses in the contracting space do exactly that. We believe that the companies with the highest profit, biggest growth, and a great employee culture have very clear expectations of what is required, they help their team grow and learn, and they pay well.
