with FREE Gated content access to SkillsUSA’s Career Essentials
At CHANNELLOCK® we’re proud to support hard-working, dedicated trade school students and teachers. We know this time is strange for all aspects of trades education, so we’re doing what we can to help.
We’ve partnered with SkillsUSA to offer free access to their Career Essentials suite to help further professional development throughout this extended closure of trades programs. While being away from your students is tough, we know the determination and spirit of our future trades pros is tougher.
Channellock, Inc. will provide a limited amount of free enrollment keys for current and future trade students through SkillsUSA’s Career Essentials suite, which offers lessons outside the realm of skilled training. With free access to these lessons, teachers can help students fine tune some of the other skills they’ll need as trades pros, such as leadership, communication, teamwork, and many more career-ready skills
