Construction Superintendent Assessment

Requirements to sit for written assessment: three years minimum experience in a supervisory role. (As with all NCCER assessments, the accredited assessment center is responsible for providing proof of experience on demand by NCCER and during audits.)

Candidates are NOT required to have engaged in or completed NCCER-specific training. However, NCCER strongly recommends completing a course of training equivalent to the referenced training found in the assessment specifications.


Organizations may use their own curriculum to prepare candidates for the NCCER assessment by aligning their programs to the specifications outlined on the NCCER Project Superintendent Specifications Sheet.

For those who do not have their own curriculum or would like to develop a program, four books were referenced when developing this assessment:

As with all NCCER curricula and assessments, an SME committee participated in the development of this assessment.
