Online Tradeschool Courses


Online Technical Education High in Value and Quality

Alpha Tradesmen Academy offers online training for aspiring tradespeople of any level of experience. Our program differs from many online trade schools because it pairs online-based lessons with hands-on experience in the field to provide a well-rounded technical education. Our method allows and encourages apprentices to work alongside current, more experienced technicians. This way, the apprentices can earn money and experience while training on their own time with Alpha Tradesmen Academy’s 24/7 online access to lessons, quizzes, exams, and more. Business owners benefit from using our program as well. Our system means that apprentices can receive professional training without losing the working hours and dealing with the expenses of sending them to traditional trade schools. In as little as six months, employers can see their number of professionally trained technicians doubled with Alpha Tradesmen Academy’s groundbreaking online program.

Quality Online Trade Programs

 Since 2017, Alpha Tradesmen Academy has been offering high-quality, professional training to aspiring tradespeople of all ages, backgrounds, and experience levels. Founded by an Air Force veteran, Alpha Tradesmen Academy seeks to bring the same dedication to responsibility, hard work, and honor that the armed forces foster and cultivate. 

Our Mission Statement

Alpha Tradesmen Academy seeks to provide professional training to the next generation of tradespeople. Simply put, the lack of new entrants in the trade field and the retirement of older technicians have created a shortage of professionally trained tradespeople. To solve this issue, we have developed a system that utilizes online training with the kind of hands-on learning that only working in the field. We desire to not only educate our apprentices and help them and their employers financially. We also aim to instill a higher level of confidence that they have been given the tools to perform almost any job they are called to do.

Online Training is the Future

While the current situation in the trade industries has its issues, we at Alpha Tradesmen Academy see a bright future for employers and tradespeople alike. We seek to break down the barriers that many companies and future technicians are facing by making it easier than ever to receive professional, up-to-date training from experienced instructors. By eliminating the financial, time-related, and other obstacles, Alpha Tradesmen Academy sets out to reinvigorate the trade industries and improve the lives and careers of both trade business owners and their employees. Beginning with plumbing, we seek to expand our program to other trades, such as roofing, electrical, HVAC, and more in the future, to meet the diverse demands of the trade industries.
