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 energy efficiency is becoming a priority for homeowners across America, many are turning to the weatherization industry to assist in their efforts. NCCER’s Weatherization program offers training that exceeds the existing standards for weatherization installers, crew chiefs, and building auditors. This program combines existing NCCER curriculum with new building science modules that address the specific needs within this industry.
