Pre-apprenticeship programs face many challenges in achieving their mission. Organizations that employ basic productivity software are limited by the fact that the individual worker does not control or manage their personal data. Contact information gets stale. Worker experience is not updated. The worker receives no benefit with regard to being found for employment opportunities. Affiliated organizations like pre-apprenticeship programs receive no reporting on the success of their graduates over the long-term. Pre-apprenticeship programs can use TradesFactor right now with their program participants for FREE.
A CTC can quickly and easily pull a report in TradesFactor of all of their alumni from a given academic year.
