- Reduces the price of "training" workers by 50%.
- Speeds up the construction, upgrading, and repair of houses and buildings when Efficiency Training is put into effect ($75,000; Build-a-lot Sequels).
- Allows players to perform "inspections" that serve to prevent houses from needing repairs. A Workshop "costs" 900 materials and three workers to build.
