Construction Industry Craft Training in the U.S. and Canada.
NCCER and the Construction Users Roundtable provided funding for a Construction Industry Institue (CII) research study titled "Construction Industry Craft Training in the U.S. and Canada."
Results of this study examining construction craft training found that investing 1% of a project's labor budget in training could have double-digit returns in productivity, reduced absenteeism, and the need for rework, among other things.
This study may only be purchased from the CII Web site.
