Step One

Locate your rank on the right side of the screen to see what NCCER craft areas you will receive credit in. If you DO NOT SEE your rank and you feel it aligns to the construction industry, please click the last column called “Request an Alignment” to submit training information for possible alignments to other crafts.

Step Two

After reviewing your rank alignment, scroll to the bottom of your specialty code’s web page to submit for credentials. Click on the red button located at the bottom of the web page and upload the required documentation needed from Hard Hat Heroes to verify your years of service.

Step Three

Due to the high volume of applicants, please allow 4-6 weeks for documentation review and credential processing.
