NCCER announces Find a Center search feature

New tool helps users search over 3,300 training locations open to the public.

The National Center for Construction Education & Research (NCCER) is making finding accredited construction training and assessment programs easy with their recently released Find a Center, featuring two key search functions. By successfully completing training at an NCCER accredited organization, individuals can earn industry-recognized credentials.

The new Find a Center training map lets craft trainees and entry-level workers search over 3,300 locations open to the public. Users can filter by location and specific crafts, such as welding, pipefitting or carpentry, to find training in their area.

For experienced craft professionals looking to take a journey-level assessment, the Find a Center assessment map provides testing facilities by location or company name. NCCER’s complete series of journey-level written assessments evaluate the knowledge of an individual in a specific craft area and provide a prescription for upgrade training when needed.

In addition, NCCER released the new Directory of Accredited Organizations, which reflects all accredited organizations, whether they offer public or in-house training. View the comprehensive list at
