Military members can earn credentials based on their Military Occupational Specialty (MOS) through NCCER’s Hard Hat Heroes program.
NCCER for Veterans
In collaboration with construction professionals who served in each military branch, NCCER has aligned its credentials with construction-based MOS codes, allowing transitioning service members to translate military experience into the skills and certifications needed for post-military employment. Our veterans can build upon those achievements by embarking on a career in construction or continuing their craft training. We’ve identified military-friendly employers ready to hire veterans to make it easy to transition to a civilian career in the construction industry.
