TechForce Launches Career-Advancement Peer Platform

TechForce Launches Career-Advancement Peer Platform is free and designed for future and working transportation techs.

TechForce Foundation, a national 501(c)(3) nonprofit, has introduced, a free platform dedicated to launching and advancing the careers of next generation technicians.

As the largest provider of scholarships for post-secondary tech training (more than $1.5 million annually), TechForce has been dedicated to solving the transportation technician shortage by helping students to and through careers as transportation techs since 2005.

“Next-gen techs are digital-native, yet there was no commercial-free digital environment for them to connect with peers, showcase their talents, check out employers and compete for points, status and prizes,” according to TechForce CEO Jennifer Maher. “This is the first and only peer network of its kind. It is full of engaging content and designed as the place for aspiring and working techs to explore and advance their careers. With the support of our many partners, TechForce developed this peer network to meet this need. is full of dynamic content that is refreshed daily. Designed by GenZers for GenZ, it is gamified to keep it fun and tap the competitive nature techs are famous for.” includes ways to:

  • follow industry trends and connect with peers and employers
  • compete and climb the leaderboard in daily trivia and other competitions
  • earn prizes from industry partners
  • learn about events, win free tickets, and see what’s going on in the area
  • apply for more than $1.5 million in scholarships awarded annually
  • access free videos and informative content to explore interests

Maher continued, “Because TechForce works with many leading companies, educational institutions and associations, our neutrality helps us accomplish things together that would be nearly impossible to tackle independently. Our partners share our dedication to placing the students and professionals first and insisted that our network not be an advertising platform. This enables us to provide fun, engaging and rewarding experiences that keep people coming back for more. Thanks to our generous supporters, we have been able to make valuable educational content free to our network. Much of the educational content within the site is fee-based outside of our network.”

Although the network is designed primarily for future and working techs, it is also popular with instructors, industry professionals, hobbyists and enthusiasts.
