    NCCER Releases New Craft Curricula

    For Immediate Release

    Alachua, Fla. —NCCER continues to develop and enhance its construction craft training programs with the release of revised curricula for Carpentry, Electrical, Masonry and Heavy Equipment Operations. This summer, NCCER released the following revisions: Carpentry Levels 2 and 3 (5th Ed.), Heavy Equipment Operations Level 3 (3rd Ed.) and Masonry Level 2 (4th Ed.). In addition, NCCER updated the entire Electrical series, Electrical Levels 1-4 (8th Ed.), to include the 2014 National Electrical Code update.

    New comprehensive lesson plans and PowerPoint presentations have replaced Annotated Instructor Guides (AIGs) and are available electronically via the NCCER Instructor Resource Center. The new lesson plans include step-by-step instructional outlines, learning objectives, teaching times and tips, safety considerations and equipment lists. In turn, the enhanced presentations are fully integrated with the lesson plans and also feature new images, key talking points, instructor notes and additional slides with graphics for instructor customizations.

    NCCER develops and publishes its curricula in partnership with leading textbook publisher Pearson. A team of Subject Matter Experts representing industry and academia also contribute to the development of training curricula to ensure that they meet or exceed industry standards. Individuals who successfully complete these training programs through an NCCER Accredited Training Sponsor will earn industry-recognized credentials through the NCCER Registry System. The materials also comply with the Department of Labor’s Office of Apprenticeship requirements for time-based training.
