Assessments

NCCER offers a complete series of entry-and journey-level written assessments as part of its National Craft Assessment and Certification Program (NCACP). These assessments evaluate the knowledge and skill level of an individual in a specific craft area and provide a prescription for upgrade training. All assessments are based upon the NCCER Curriculum and have been developed in conjunction with Subject Matter Experts from the industry and Prov™, NCCER’s test development partner.

NCCER also offers management assessments for experienced foremen and supervisors and a series of academic tests for secondary career and technical education, which assist states in implementing statewide accountability systems

Performance verifications

NCCER Performance Verifications (PVs) are designed to assess an individual's skill level on specific tasks. PVs require a participant to demonstrate their skill level in a controlled, observable, and measurable manner and must be administered by a qualified objective performance evaluator.

Each package contains a submission sheet, cover page, how-to instructions, and the candidate and evaluator reference sheets for each covered task, as well as any necessary drawings and forms.

Credentials

After successful completion of a written assessment or performance verification, an individual’s qualifications are tracked through NCCER’s National Registry. These industry credentials give employers confidence in the craft professional’s skill, knowledge, and desire for continuous professional development. They also provide the craft professional with industry-recognized credentials to help build upon their career in construction.

The following certifications are available through the NCACP:
  • Certified Written: Successful completion of the written assessment
  • Performance Verified: Successful completion of the practical performance of a particular craft
  • Certified Plus: Successful completion of both the written assessment and the corresponding performance verification
