Student Handbook
Students are expected to read and abide by the policies and regulations of the training centers.

NCCER (National Center for Construction Education & Research) maintains a portable and widely recognized credentialing and certification system through its Registry. This Registry assures portability of skills by providing transcripts, certificates, and wallet cards to students who successfully complete the NCCER Curriculum through an accredited sponsor. These valuable industry credentials benefit students as they seek employment and build their careers. To be entered in NCCER's Registry, you must complete and sign a Registration and Release form. This form will be completed on the first night of class in each semester and requires your Social Security Number and your signature.

A transfer student is anyone who wants to enroll in the ABC Apprenticeship and Craft Training Program and has previously attended a 2 or 4 year institution of higher learning.

To be considered for admission as a transfer student, you are required to submit documented evidence of such additional experience or training.

Those with military experience can take an advanced placement assessment to evaluate knowledge and skills. This is a measurable way to determine which level of the program is the best starting point for the individual.

You can test out for advanced placement to sit in a higher level class. NCCER Assessments & Certification Testing will evaluate your knowledge and skill level. However, your employer must agree to you being tested.

Testing Fee: Member price: $150 + tax
