The construction industry employs more people and contributes more to the nation’s economy than any other industry. This means that there will always be a source of well paying jobs and career opportunities.
Opportunity is driven by knowledge and ability, which are in turn driven by education and training. This program of the National Center for Construction Education and Research (NCCER) was designed and developed by the construction industry for the construction industry. It is the only nationally-accredited, competency-based construction training program in the United States. A competency-based program requires that the trainee demonstrate the ability to safely perform specific job-related tasks.

“It is imperative that industry and education work together to develop a new generation
of workers in the skilled trades. This need cannot be overstated.”
