ReTool: Bridging the Skills Gap

ReTool was created to address the growing skills gap in America. We partner with post-secondary training institutions 

and military reintegration programs across the country to build our bench of ReTool Technicians. These individuals have completed 

a technical, post-secondary program, and / or they are transitioning out of the military, are mechanically inclined and have undergone

a rigorous screening process in order to prove themselves as the next generation of technicians!
