Sept. 15, 2022, Canada –  FutureShield Inc. has announced a partnership with SkillGrader, adding their product to their suite of offerings.  SkillGrader is a training application that helps organizations objectively evaluate the performance of any observable skill, whether it is done during training, for certification, as part of routine drills, or as a part of on-the-job performance. It replaces paper-based assessments with a technology solution that provide immediate reports on individual and team proficiency.

SkillGrader will help modernize the training experience including fire protection, incident command, and safety training. It aims to replaces pen and paper and allows trainers to digitize assessments where trainers can quickly record and measure first responder performance through a tablet. With the ability to customize the forms to suit their needs, training will accurately reflect unique exercises and situations that the diverse group of first responders across Canada may face. The metrics collected give trainers the ability to verify training effectiveness and to develop a comprehensive feedback loop between training and performance.
