Have Skills To Share?
IFRC ultimately is about trade skills. Helping to promote credible organizations teaching trade skills. If you have some background that can help, please step forward and let us know.
Whether you are a single person who wants to donate or a humongous corporation who has some resources that will help, you are most welcome!
IFRC is about helping to create more qualified people to learn skills to fill millions of available jobs. One of the major roles is to certify.
LEARN IT. Advocacy for programs to teach valuable job skills that contribute to rewarding careers in residential renovation, remodeling, and recovery. There's more to education than a 4-year degree and these valuable jobs cannot be outsourced. We'd like to see shop-class make a comeback!
Safety on the job seems like common sense to most people. But there's a lot more to the topic as it pertains to skilled trades. We're interested in helping to promote a safe workplace and long productive careers for all skilled craft workers.
PROVE IT. Whether you are a seasoned tradesman or a new vocational graduate the IFRC provides the means to validate your skills beyond all doubt. Certification encompasses theory, experience, and hands-on practical application judged against well established best practices.
IFRC sees ethics as an important core component for a successful career in the skilled trades such as replacement remodeling and contracting. Trust and confidence in people with a reputation for high integrity almost guarantee success.
USE IT. Use your proven trade skills by filling one of the millions of available positions — progress in your career towards many opportunities to expand both trade and valuable organizational and business skills. Certification gives customers and employers alike a high confidence level and a strong preference to support it.
A career as a skilled craftsman generally means more opportunities and responsibilities over time. IFRC is intent on setting its members on numerous paths for success including people skills, technology, management, and entrepreneurship.
