Skill and Knowledge Gap within the Building Industry
We are pushing against the tide in our building industry. For example, “Why should I be certified or spend money to take additional courses?” is a statement by far too many builders. They’ve lost the essence of what it means to be part of a tradition of this “noble profession” that in other countries value the contributions and ongoing learning within the trades. These overseas training traditions live by the root word of profession – “profess” – the expression of a code, a code of ethics that embodies lifelong learning, mastery, and mentorship.
