The Importance of Training with Felipe Bautista

In the skilled trades industry, the value of training cannot be understated. However, over the years, the art of apprenticeship and intentional skill-building has been lost.

The trades have adopted a “sink or swim” attitude, and its left prospective employees wanting to enter into the trades feeling frustrated and unsupported.
One thing is clear—times are changing! And if companies want to hire and retain quality tradesmen—tradesmen like you—they’re going to have to step their game up regarding the training they offer. In this new episode of “The Proud Skilled Worker”, host Michael Peatrowsky interviews maintenance mechanic, Filipe Bautista about the value of training and how it contributes to professional and personal growth.
