SkillHero, the leading career network for the skilled trades, has announced its partnership with CareerSafe, the premier provider of innovative and affordable online training. This strategic collaboration will bring CareerSafe’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) training and professional development programs to the members of SkillHero’s extensive network.
SkillHero is the preferred national supplier of CareerSafe’s online training for early-career individuals looking to enter the skilled trades. Together, the goal is to increase the certificates and credentials earned by individuals ready to enter the skilled trades workforce.
Speaking about the development, Quincy Nadel, Chief Operating Officer of SkillHero, said:
We’re focused on solving the skilled labour shortage. One way we do that is by connecting members on SkillHero with training and resources that help support their career development.
Founded in 2003, CareerSafe is widely recognized for its interactive and innovative online training programs, which adhere to high-quality standards. The platform has set out to address the safety training gap for young workers to make jobs safer for workers. From safety and health training to employability skills and cybersecurity awareness, CareerSafe is focused on providing the foundational skills workers need to launch successful careers. Both organizations hope to foster a safe and knowledgeable skilled workforce across the United States by combining CareerSafe’s renowned OSHA 10-hour training into the SkillHero platform.
Sherry Pruitt, Executive Director of Sales and Marketing at CareerSafe, added:
We’re excited about this partnership as both SkillHero and CareerSafe share a common goal of educating and training young workers to excel in their chosen careers. The result is a pipeline of well-trained potential employees with a nationally recognized credential ready for work.
