Mobile test prep company Pocket Prep today announces the launch of new study material for aspiring skilled trade professionals. Skilled Trades Pocket Prep is the latest app to be added to the lineup of on-the-go study tools the company offers.

The new offering provides study prep for hands-on skilled trade careers such as plumbers, home inspectors, electricians, and auto mechanics who are seeking certification.

The Skilled Trades app is an expansion from a former automotive-only offering. What was formerly known as Automotive Pocket Prep has now changed to Skilled Trades Pocket Prep. All content found within the Automotive app is still included within the Skilled Trades app.

Current users will see a change in the app’s name and icon image, but all other key study features and material within the app will remain the same. The only in-app change users will see is additional exam names added to the list of available study prep.

“We are always researching career certifications that have limited supplemental tools to determine if and when it would make sense for us to provide that additional support,” said Peter Murphy, CEO and Co-founder of Pocket Prep.

“We saw a distinct need in the trades industry for additional study support and we got to work on building the study material. We’ve been working on this content for a bit now, and we are thrilled to finally make this available to the general public.”
