Freedom Forever — a pioneer of the 25-year solar energy production guarantee — is one of the fastest-growing solar contractors in the country, now with almost 30 departments and over 60 crews nationwide. They have made the Inc. 500 list for three consecutive years. All of that growth brings new territory, more jobs and new employees — all of which means more training. To help train this increasing number of team members in a year where social distancing is a top objective, the company has shifted to a mobile-first microlearning platform, EdApp.
Freedom Forever required a practical, user-friendly learning platform that could meet their innovative needs to train at scale. Beyond delivering vital procedural and compliance-based learning, Freedom Forever sought out a modern Learning Management System (LMS) that would not only be engaging and effective for their learners, but that would also offer something new. With a desire to stay away from clunky, traditional eLearning, the energy company also needed an LMS that would easily host an unlimited amount of lessons that could be accessed, completed, and retained by all of their growing teams scattered across the nation.
“We needed an LMS that would engage our learners in a different and innovative way that could be mobile accessible and easy for all of our team members to use,” said Edwin Dayrit Jr, Learning & Development Program Manager at Freedom Forever. “With the help of EdApp, this was achieved without a hitch.
EdApp allows any company the ability to create engaging courseware to deploy to teams in a matter of hours. It also includes cool built-in features like gamification and real prizing to keep people engaged. Freedom Forever’s team can access learning content in small, digestible chunks, straight from their smartphones in as little as 5 minutes.
Have you checked out our YouTube page?
We have a ton video interviews and additional content on our YouTube page. Recently we debuted Power Forward! -- a collaboration with BayWa r.e. to discuss higher level industry topics as well as best practices / trends for running a solar business today.
Our longer running side project is The Pitch -- in which we have awkward discussions with solar manufacturers and suppliers about their new technology and ideas so that you don't have to. We've discusses everything from residential rail-less deck attaching and home solar financing to large-scale energy storage value stacking and utility-driven new home solar + storage microgrids.
We also post our Project of the Year announcements there! Interviews with this year's winners will be up starting the week of Nov. 8. Head there and subscribe today to stay on top of all this extra stuff.
