About the NCCER Certification Training

The National Center for Construction Education and Research (NCCER) is a not-for-profit education foundation created to develop industry-driven standardized craft training programs with portable credentials and help address the critical workforce shortage facing the construction industry. YouthBuild programs can greatly benefit from the NCCER training and curriculum. YouthBuild USA is the national sponsor for YouthBuild programs that will maintain the structure of master trainers, certification workshops, and access to curricula. Once staff attend and pass the NCCER course, they are eligible to certify students at their program. YouthBuild USA will register program sites as NCCER Training Units. YouthBuild programs are then eligible to use the NCCER Registry System to document their students for certification.

As part of its accreditation process, NCCER has developed the Instructor Certification Program (ICTP). Through this process, NCCER certifies the Master Trainer. In turn, the Master Trainer certifies the local Craft/Technician Instructor. This network of certified instructors assures that NCCER training programs will meet the standards of instruction set by the industry. Construction managers and trainers who attend and complete this training will be certified as Craft Instructors, giving them the ability to certify their students in the NCCER Concentration Construction Curricula. Also, other YB staff members can be certified as NCCER Curriculum Proctors or Specialty Trainers who can assist in the certification of YB trainees.
