ASSESSMENTS

NCCER offers a complete series of entry-level and journeyman level written assessments as part of its National Craft Assessment and Certification Program (NCACP).

These assessments evaluate the knowledge of an individual in a specific craft area and provide a prescription for upgrade training when needed.

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.

PERFORMANCE VERIFICATION

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. 

CREDENTIALS

After successful completion of a written assessment or performance verification, an individual’s qualifications are tracked through NCCER’s 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.
