Transfr is on a mission to create alternative pathways to career success. Our hands-on simulation-based training provides people with the skills they need to enter or reenter the workforce, enabling them to have a better quality of life.  Our technology gives immersive training that the user absorbs much more readily than video tutorials, slide presentations, and other training methods.
