NCCER Industrial Craft assessments:

Craft assessments are computer based tests that are intended to access a person’s already obtained knowledge and skill level. They are not intended to be used to determine job eligibility, or to train someone who does not already have knowledge in the craft. Once a person takes and passes a craft assessment they will be considered “knowledge verified”, and will receive an NCCER card with a number that can be used to look up credentials online.

NCCER Performance Verifications (PV’s) Hands-on, Certified Plus:

If a person wishes to be certified in an industrial craft, they must first take and pass the computer based assessment. A PV may be scheduled to obtain a Certified Plus status. Currently CTC offers Boilermaker Maintenance, Pipefitter and Scaffold Builder PV’S.

NCCER Pipeline Operator Qualification (OQ) Assessments:

Pipeline assessments are computer based tests that are intended to access a person’s already obtained knowledge and skill level. They are not intended to be used to determine job eligibility, or to train someone who does not already have knowledge of pipeline operations. Pipeline tests are given by individual covered task (CT) number. The person only needs to pass the individual task to be considered qualified in that task. Once the task assessment is taken and passed, the results will automatically be sent to NCCER who will submit the task(s) to ISNetworld, which is the system that companies use to verify qualifications.

NCCER OQ Performance Verifications (PV’s) Hands-on:

If a company requires that the Operator be Performance Verified the person must first take and pass the computer based assessment for the covered task. Many companies do not require their Operators to be performance verified. Currently CTC does not offer Pipeline PV’s.
