NCCER issues industry-recognized credentials to recognize accomplishments in NCCER training and journey-level testing. Training credentials are earned for completion of modules, levels and crafts. Journey-level credentials are earned for successful completion of knowledge and performance testing and include certification when both knowledge and performance testing are passed. NCCER’s Registry maintains a database of all credentials and has an Online Verification component that allows employers to verify credentials in real time.
For credentialing purposes, NCCER collects an individual’s name, email address, date of birth, place of birth, mobile phone number and an Alternate ID of choice. NCCER takes privacy and security of information seriously.
Our modular curricula allows organizations to customize training to their specific needs. NCCER provides recommendations for order of delivery and meets the Department of Labor’s apprenticeship requirements for time-based training. Organizations are provided the flexibility to teach NCCER curricula modules in any order. There is also an option to build customized training courses. No matter the delivery method or order, training conducted under an accredited or registered program leads to verifiable, stackable, portable, industry-recognized credentials.
