Mobile test prep company Pocket Prep today announces the launch of new study material for a range of early-career and essential worker certifications with its Essentials Pocket Prep app. The certifications within Essentials are most commonly taken by people who are just about to finalize their schooling and are preparing to enter a new career field.

The app is free of charge and provides over 6,300 exam practice questions for career certifications spanning food and beverage safety, educator academic skills assessment, military training aptitude test, and much more.

Pocket Prep made a conscious decision in 2020 to begin building giveback initiatives to further support its mission of making education more accessible and affordable. In 2020, the company launched a bi-annual racial equity scholarship program and in 2021 a Financial Support Program. Providing free study material to an audience of early career and essential workers is the next iteration of how the company is giving back.
