Field Nation University

Earlier this year, we launched Field Nation University, an interactive learning platform designed to help freelance technicians advance their technical skills and field services education. Currently, Field Nation University offers two certifications for freelancers: Security and Alarm, and a Protec WorkSafe WorkSmart Certification.

The Security and Alarm Certification offers freelancers tips, insights, and best practices for installing security and alarm/home and office automation systems and technology. Users who complete the Security and Alarm certification earn an FNU badge and are more likely to receive work requests from businesses and buyers looking for skilled technicians.

The Protec WorkSafe WorkSmart badge is given to highly qualified contractors who have a history of extraordinary performance. To earn a Protec badge, freelancers must have a 5-star ranking and a valid background check that has been completed in the last 5 years. Freelancers who obtain this badge are eligible for exclusive jobs on the Field Nation platform and can benefit from an enhanced profile and increased work opportunities.

Field Nation University certifications are a quick and easy way to increase the visibility and amount of work a freelance user can receive. Each certification is free for all freelance users on the Field Nation platform and can be accessed on the Field Nation University page.
