You can receive credit for 21 NCCER training modules* in the following craft* areas: Core, Electrical, Industrial Maintenance Electrical & Instrumentation, Sustainable Construction and Safety Technology. In the chart below, an X next to a module indicates you are eligible to receive credit for that module.

If an X does not appear next to a module then additional training is required for the craft level* completion. Each module builds upon one another to accomplish a level completion and this information is tracked in NCCER’s Registry System.  An industry- recognized credential* is awarded with level completions and each craft usually has three to four levels.

*Refer to NCCER’s definitions located on the right side of the screen to fully understand these terms.


NCCER's Core curriculum is a prerequisite to all other Level 1 craft curriculum and gives the trainee the basic skills needed to continue education in any craft area he or she chooses.
