Gainesville, Fla.— NCCER announces the release of the Contren® Learning Series Power Industry Fundamentals curriculum.

The Power Industry Fundamentals curriculum consists of NCCER’s basic construction skills course, Core: Introductory Craft Skills and a newly developed introductory module on the power industry. This full-color module titled Introduction to the Power Industry sets the stage for students entering into the electrical energy production field. It describes many ways in which electricity can be produced, the economics involved in energy production and the environmental impacts of distributing electrical power. 

NCCER worked with subject matter experts representing construction companies from across the country to introduce relevant industry topics.

Power Industry Fundamentals is a prerequisite for the Power Generation Maintenance course designed for traditional power plants; and a Power Line Worker course to support the installation and maintenance of overhead power systems. 

Students successfully completing Power Industry Fundamentals through an NCCER Accredited Training Sponsor can earn industry-recognized credentials through NCCER's National Registry. For more information on the latest NCCER energy related curriculum, please visit or
