In an effort to provide students and craft professionals with industry-recognized credentials and assure national portability of skills, NCCER maintains a credentialing and certification system through its National Registry. This online database tracks both training and/or assessments for its participants.
For training, the National Registry provides transcripts, certificates and wallet cards to students who successfully complete the NCCER curriculum through an NCCER Accredited Training Sponsor. A certificate and a wallet card are granted when a trainee completes Core Curriculum or any other full level of a craft. These industry credentials allow participants to provide easy verification of training for current or potential employers.
For assessments, verification of an individual's qualifications can be accomplished through NCCER's National Registry. Credentials include: knowledge verified* for successful completion of the written assessment for a craft; performance verified for successful completion of the performance verification for a craft; and certified plus for successful completion of both the written assessment and the corresponding performance verification. These industry credentials give employers confidence in a craft professional’s skill, knowledge, and desire for continuous improvement.
