- ProBility now offers leading vocational educational materials in 60+ fields, including the electrical, construction, plumbing and security industries

Access to technology-based education resources is becoming open to more people. Even as the National Center for Education Statistics reported about 20.5 million students (fall 2016) were enrolled in colleges and universities throughout the U.S., career training and advancement materials are becoming more available to those looking for jobs requiring skilled labor. ProBility Media Corp. (OTCQB: PBYA) is a growing brand serving the training requirements for several different technical fields. In many of these, 95 percent of employers are having trouble finding workers with the right skills in 2017, based on U.S. Chamber of Commerce data published in a recent report (http://nnw.fm/Fe8zJ) on skilled labor demand.
Thanks to several recent acquisitions, ProBility can now provide study materials for electricians, construction workers, contractors, and plumbers, as well as many other skilled trades. The company provides access to all the latest NEC National Electrical Codes, with books, reference guides, and digital media available on CD and DVD. It has also reached into the public safety market. The launch of ProBility Safety Academy means training is open to those looking to advance their potential in public safety, private security, criminal justice, and police science.
The need for vocational training services is reaching from coast to coast. High school teachers and students alike are benefiting. In fact, technical high schools are cropping up in places like Huntington, West Virginia, as a recent New York Times article pointed out (http://nnw.fm/xTD3Y). Four teachers at a summer training program worked on a miniature boiler similar to larger counterparts found at power generating plants. The educational programs they’re preparing for will simulate workplaces and include everything from vocational training to random drug testing, to get students familiarized with work environments and prepared for future careers.
Simulated workplaces also have real-world equipment, ranging from drafting tables and welding torches to stethoscopes and 3D printers. Laser engraving equipment and professional software are expected to be used, from leading brands like AutoDesk Inventor. As part of the program, students will also get breaks during the day as employees working for technical organizations do.
ProBility is focused on providing a one-stop resource. Therefore, small- and medium-sized businesses can access e-learning resources, so they can offer employees training and career advancement opportunities. Its efforts to provide a single source of training materials does not stop at the borders of the United States. The recent acquisition of Cranbury International extends the company’s e-learning reach into the Caribbean, Mexico, Columbia, Brazil, and other countries in Central and South America.
