The NCCER has joined with the Industrial Projects Report in order to expand the acceptance of NCCER certified craftsmen onto current construction projects. NCCER certifications can appeal highly to most craftsmen due to the increase in hourly wages from companies.
NCCER is a not-for-profit, education foundation created in 1996. It was developed with the support of more than 125 construction CEOs and various association and academic leaders who united to revolutionize training for the construction industry. Sharing the common goal of developing a safe and productive workforce, these companies created a standardized training and credentialing program for the industry. This progressive program has evolved into curricula for more than 60 craft areas and a complete series of more than 70 assessments offered in over 4,000 NCCER-accredited training and assessment locations across the United States.
NCCER develops standardized construction and maintenance curricula and assessment with portable credentials. These credentials are tracked through NCCER’s National Registry which allows organization and companies to track the qualification of their craft professionals and/or check the qualifications of possible new hires. The National Registry also assists craft professionals by maintaining their records in a secure database.
Training is done through the NCCER Curricula Series which includes construction, maintenance, and pipeline curricula and a complete line of safety and management programs and is recognized by multiple state Departments of Education.
