National Center for Construction Education & Research
NCCER and CareerSafe want to help Americans get back to work with careers that build a better tomorrow. Training and credentials that lead to job placement and the beginnings of a fulfilling career pathway are essential to our success as a nation. Our hospitals, community centers, schools, office buildings, infrastructure and more depend on a trained, qualified workforce committed to safety and sustainability. We can make this happen through our Fast Track program.
The goal of our fast track program is to recruit the high number of unemployed Americans into the construction industry and provide them with training, credentials and jobs that lead to high demand, sustainable careers.

The Fast Track program is based on NCCER Core, which is an introduction to the construction industry and provides instruction in basic safety, construction math, tools, construction drawings, material handling, employability skills and more. As with all NCCER curricula, each module includes a knowledge and performance test.

The organization providing the training has to be accredited or working under an NCCER accredited organization. As students complete each module of training by passing the associated knowledge and performance tests, the completions are recorded in our secure Registry System used to house the student’s transcripts, credentials and certifications. This online system allows for portability of skills and verification by schools and employers.
