The shift to online learning was catalyzed by the pandemic last year. Students across every age and demographic shifted mainly, if not completely, to an online learning environment within a matter of weeks. According to KPMG, 90% of corporations now use e-learning within their organization. This huge migration to online learning platforms has inspired the creation of some truly useful resources, like RocketCert.com, a startup based in Knoxville, TN.
RocketCert is an online education company that allows users to obtain and renew professional licenses from home. Founded in 2019, RocketCert is quickly becoming the ultimate resource for anyone seeking a license in the construction industry and has pages upon pages of information about nearly every type of construction license in every state, what they can do, and what it takes to get one. For the last year they have only offered courses in the construction industries, but “Cosmetology”, “Real Estate”, and “Food and Beverage” categories were recently added to the website.
“When creating RocketCert, we wanted to inspire a vision of lifelong learning for our customers, and we knew we needed to provide education that offers more than compliance requirements,” said company president Tom Dorsey, Jr. “We try to teach skills to help someone accelerate and advance their career.” he added.
Most professional licenses today require applicants to pass an examination. RocketCert teamed up with industry professionals across the country to develop exam preparation bundles that include everything anyone would need to pass the state test. Customized for each license type and state, these bundles have the books, tabs, guides, and courses. In addition to the courses and materials, RocketCert has a full team of in-house experts to provide support to students whenever they need it. This seems to be an all-in-one solution for anyone who is looking for a career in the trades.
For those who already have a license, they also offer online continuing education classes. These CE courses are required by most state boards to renew a license, but they can be used by any professionals in the field to stay up to date on all the latest changes to codes, technology, and laws related to the industry.
The most surprising thing on the website is the variety of books for sale. They have books about general carpentry, masonry, simple electrical work, and so much more. Priced below amazon, this would be a great place to grab a gift for new homeowners or someone who enjoys doing things around the house (and a good way to make sure their projects stay up to code).
With zero ads and no sign-up required, RocketCert.com is a great resource to keep handy.
