High school students can enroll in a construction trade program at their high school and can start learning on the job skills that will increase their earning power immediately upon graduation. They learn a valuable trade and receive "national recognition" for skills upon graduation. Skill certification will be recorded in the National Registry of the National Center For Construction Education & Research(NCCER).
NCCER is recognized by contractors nationwide and provides certification for students that shows they are trained to industry approved standards. After completing the School-to-Career program, students will be able to continue a standard apprenticeship or journeyman program at an advanced level.
