NCCER: The National Center for Construction Education and Research offers certification training for CTE Educators to become a “NCCER Certified Craft Instructor” through a training course called the ICTP course (Instructor Certification Course). School districts and campuses with Certified Craft Instructors may become NCCER accredited training facilities.
This three day, 24 contact hour, training will assist CTE educators in understanding the national standards for offering NCCER certification to students in all areas of construction. Participants will learn how to prepare your program, classroom/lab, and school/campus to successfully offer NCCER certification opportunities for career and technical education students, and how to successfully connect with business partners - a required element of the NCCER facilities accreditation process.
Upon successful completion of this training program, participants will be “NCCER Certified Craft Instructors” in Core Curriculum plus as many as two other craft training areas (welding.carpentry, electrical, plumbing, etc.). Successful instructors will be well on their way to having their facilities NCCER accredited.
This training is particularly targeted toward CTE Agricultural Science teachers and CTE Trade and Industrial Educators but other interested educators are welcome to participate.
