          Construction C.O.E. earns first national accreditation

  • After a recent site visit and review by Blair Williamson, Director of Training and Development for the National Center for Construction Education and Research (NCCER), the non-profit construction industry foundation has affirmed that four construction-related programs
    at HCC – the core curriculum, electrical, welding and HVAC programs - are in good standing.

  • This designation means students in these areas of study may receive NCCER credentials upon with successful completion of program modules. The NCCER designation is the first national certification and accreditation for HCC’s Construction C.O.E.

  • Background: NCCER is a not-for-profit 501 (c)(3) education foundation created by the construction industry to develop standardized curriculum with portable credentials and to help address the skilled, construction workforce shortage. NCCER is recognized by the industry as the training, assessment, certification, and career development standard for the construction and maintenance craft professional.
