NCCER for Learners & Craft Professionals
High School and College Students
Prepare for a career in construction with industry-recognized and standardized construction training. NCCER credentials are modular and portable, so learners can continue building their skills no matter where life takes them.
Work-Based Learning (WBL) makes our programs relevant for students by connecting training to the job site and increasing learners’ technical and employability skills.
Our Hard Hat Heroes initiative offers veterans the opportunity to earn NCCER credit for skills and training received during their military service.
NCCER worked with construction professionals who served in each military branch to crosswalk military MOS codes to appropriate NCCER modules to make it easy for veterans to see which NCCER credentials their military training and experience qualify them for.
“If you take a look at the NCCER curricula, there is a lot that can be applied in the field. It’s easy to digest. If you listen, pay attention and review, you can learn a lot.” – Chris Manzelli, Electrician
