Subject Matter Experts

Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) are a vital part of NCCER’s workforce development system. Top-notch teams are recruited for each craft to assist in curriculum development, assessment item writing and review, as well as the development of performance profiles and performance verifications.  

We strive for committees to balance industry and education by recruiting construction and maintenance professionals with at least journey-level experience, and instructors from around the country. But there’s more to involvement than outstanding knowledge and familiarity with NCCER. Here’s what we’re looking for:

  • Attendance: Our outstanding SMEs consistently attend our meetings, and when life happens, they give their project team a heads up and send any notes ASAP.

  • Participation: Our outstanding SMEs consistently contribute and offer feedback. If something is wrong, they offer an innovative solution.

  • Deadlines: Our outstanding SMEs do everything they can to get their work in on time.

  • Communication: Our outstanding SMEs respond timely and always keep us updated on project-relevant items.
