Up-Skilling & Re-skilling the Workforce

July 17, 2018 the Unted States Whitehouse (https://www.whitehouse.gov) published a report by the Council of Economic Advisers (CEA) on "Addressing America’s Reskilling Challenge".  Its an interesting read on whats happening in America, and there is a larger affect in such industries as telecommunications which have a global impact.

The executive summary and full document are published here, but to cut to the chase, in America, the older workforce is retiring, and the younger workforce needs to up-skill to remain competitive in potentially shrinking number of companies.  This is especially in telecommunications as mergers and acquisitions take place and workers are displaced. Those displaced are often less skilled than those who retain their jobs, however this varies by situation.  The report also indicates that those who get training/up-skill do make more money than their counterparts, and this is not the only report study which indicates this fact.  Additionally, companies often know what skills they need, however they aren't always on-track to make sure their employees skills meet the requirements of the company.  This problem can be resolved and that's what we're setting out to do.  MEF Professional Certification consists of 3 exams currently which address specific domains of knowledge rthat directly apply to todays telecommunications/IT workforce and a proven track record of proof points and successes illustrating the value of MEF Professional Certifications.
