Get NCCER Tested – Now Offered After Hours & Weekends…
What is an Assessment?
The National Craft Assessment and Certification process (NCACP) was developed for the construction and maintenance industries to evaluate the quality of an individual’s ability in specifics tasks and trades. DWA offers over 80 different NCCER assessments in Port Arthur. All assessments are based upon NCCER’s curricula and have been developed with guidance of Subject Matter Experts (SME). Assessments:
Evaluate knowledge & skills of experienced craft technicians & workforce productivity
Achieve higher quality construction with increased cost-effectiveness
Provide a training prescription to guide future professional development & maximize training dollars
When you successfully complete testing, we use the NCCER’s Registry System to record your completions and you are issued the appropriate credentials. It is these portable, industry-recognized credentials that many industry leaders look for when making employment decisions.
For over 12 years we’ve been helping train underserved communities in the Golden Triangle for an industrial career. (You may even have one of our GTEC graduates in your company.)
Recently, several of our Partner Companies have reached out to us because they needed help certifying and re-certifying their Craft Journeyman faster with a more flexible testing schedule. After all, most workers have difficulty making it to a testing center in regular business hours.
We’re happy to report that for the last 5 months we have been able to meet that need and we are now extending that service to more contractors.
We have now opened our approved NCCER Accredited Testing Center to provide over 80 different knowledge-based assessments on a fully flexible schedule including days, nights and weekends.
With a shortage of trained personnel, apprenticeship programs are becoming a golden opportunity. Offering hands-on training, many lead to well-paid, licensed industry roles. Our Pre-Apprenticeship programs give you the training you need to walk into these apprenticeship positions in only 10 weeks of night classes – with free tuition.
Digital Workforce Academy (DWA) is a Department of Labor recognized Pre- Apprenticeship
program. Our Department of Labor Registered Apprenticeship partner is MRSW Management, LLC. We are able to train and place people across multiple crafts and multiple employers.
Apprenticeships are a proven path to providing for your family and community: you’ll “earn while you learn,” earning wages above industry average while developing essential knowledge both in the classroom and on jobsites – for free.
