Trainer Toolkit

The Trainer Toolkit has everything you need to teach Financial Tools for the Trades to apprentices, including:

Survival Guide

The Financial Survival Guide for Apprentices is a popular, easy‐to‐read manual that helps apprentices save for layoffs, build good credit, and more. Do‐it‐yourself worksheets allow apprentices to apply what they’ve learned to their own lives.


Key topics include

  • Financial realities of working in the building and construction trades

  • Be prepared for your first year of apprenticeship
  • Tools for smart money management
  • Make credit work for you
  • Saving and investing basics

If you’re teaching the Financial Tools for the Trades class, you’ll want a Survival Guide for each of your apprentices. This guide goes hand-in-hand with the lessons. Apprentices will continue to use these guides long after the Financial Tools class is over.
