Working through NCCER, NMEC is developing formal written and performance-based assessments for production crafts so that individuals can prove what they know and what they can do, and employers can verify that applicants and/or their workforce have the skills needed to get the job done.

Through NCCER, NMEC is developing entry- and journey-level written assessments and performance verifications based on curricula developed by the organization in partnership with subject matters experts from our member companies. Written assessments are designed to assess a worker’s knowledge in a specific craft area and if needed, provide a prescription for training. Performance verifications require workers to demonstrate their level of skill on specific tasks. These assessments must be administered by a qualified, objective performance evaluator in an environment that is controlled and observable and in a way that is measurable.
