REMEMBER: NCCER credentials are permanent, stackable (can add to them), portable, and recognized by the construction and maintenance industries worldwide.

MCEF can administer all NCCER knowledge verified, computer-based assessments EXCEPT Crane, Rigger, & Signal Person.

Companies may use assessments to measure knowledge of incoming workers and build training programs to fill skill gaps. (Assessments cannot be used as sole hiring requirement). This can be done for individuals or for departments or functional areas. MCEF conducts assessments for industry and works with department heads and supervisors to develop training programs to fill training gaps.
