What are we?
Your source for industry training!
With over 20 years experience in the industry, the Bedrock team has been training and assisting manufacturers and distributors with live and online traiing for years. We saw the need for a simple, quick way to learn about the many varied training offerings in the industry. The idea of the MARKETPLACE launched and became a reality in Fall 2012 with 30 listings, and is expanding every day.
To better understand why we’re called TheVORTAL, let’s look at -
