At last, the wait is over! Episode 432 of the Smart Buildings Academy's Podcast is finally here! We sat down for an incredible roundtable discussion on Wednesday, June 7th, in an episode we've titled, "Growth and Grit: Our Workforce Development Endeavors Revealed".
In this discussion, we peeled back the layers on our trailblazing, fully online, 11-week workforce development program. Yes, we've been busy transforming ordinary postal workers and hotel lobby clerks into proficient building automation service technicians in less than three months! Even we couldn't believe it initially, but by the fourth week of the program, an astounding 80% of the technical labor is already billable.
We haven't kept our journey a secret either. This episode features frank discussions about the obstacles we faced, the lessons we learned, and the successes we've achieved. And, as a bonus, we're giving you a sneak peek into our exciting enhanced Version 2.0 curriculum, which is set to roll out in Fall 2023.
If you're curious about remote talent development, or you're wondering about the ideal students for our program, we've got you covered. This episode is jam-packed with invaluable insights and information.
If your interests lie in building automation, HVAC, or revolutionizing workforce development in these sectors, this episode is an absolute must-listen. It's here that the future of our industry begins.
We invite everyone to tune in, share, and engage with us during this enlightening episode. Let's grow together, folks!
