    This forum category is dedicated to the sharing of information that can help young tradesmen and women succeed in their careers. The lack of young people entering the trades has been a heavily discussed topic and we want to give experienced tradesmen and women an opportunity to share their experiences with those just starting out.

    Feel free to share stories of your first day on the job, or a memorable shop class, trade school or apprenticeship experience. As the forum continues to grow, we are excited to provide a means for experienced construction professionals to give back so the next generation can grow to be just as experienced and accomplished.

    Click here to visit the new Train a Pro forum category to start a topic.

    I am glad you added these two valuable categories. I completely agree that the more training up an coming tradesmen and women get the more successful the industry as a whole will be.

    Interesting, while i am not in the trades professionally it’s surprising to know that there is not much young talent entering the field.

    Is there a plan to share this information? Does anyone have ideas on how we can spread the word?

    Our goal is to first connect with instructors who could then share the forum with their students, apprentices, or anyone who is new in the trades. “Train a Pro” would be the dedicated forum category to ask and share details about the trades. They also will have access to all the features that other members do (including Pro Community Rewards). Once we get a large enough community of students and apprentices we could work on adding special features just for them. There are countless special programs we could add to the site to help tradesmen and women as they start out in their career.

    We are currently working to connect with instructors that we know, but if any of you know of any, you can email me at aaron@bethepro.com and we can get in touch and see if they’d be interested in using BTP for their students/apprentices. Or if you’re close friends with any instructors, you can bring it up and have them get in touch with me if they have any specific questions.

    This is a really great and creative way to help address the need for training more people in the trades. I am eager to see how it develops in the coming months. Brilliant.

    It doesn’t seem as though we have added a lot of instructors to the site as of yet – I am curious how this has developed behind the scenes / what other opinions are on this so far? I definitely still like the idea!

    John,

    We are currently brainstorming through this. It’s an important focus and we want to make sure we do it right. Thanks for keeping this in the back of your mind. We’d love everyone’s support and help when we do start promoting this heavily.
