Spring Valley High School Becomes NCCER Accredited

Spring Valley High School students will now have a head start in finding a job in the construction industry through the National Center for Construction Education and Research, commonly known as NCCER.

Spring Valley High School building construction teacher, Mr. Mikel Trapp recently completed the process of having his class become an NCCER Accredited Training and Education Facility. 

With this initial safety course and subsequent core curriculum, our students will be one step closer to obtaining a position in the construction industry immediately after high school graduation by adding this important Certificate of Completion to their resume.

The Certificate of Completion is a valuable and industry-standard tool that employers use when interviewing and determining which employees to hire because it lets the employer know that the potential employee already has the basic safety skills needed to be successful in the construction-related position. Teachers enter the students completing the Certificate of Completion into a national registry so employers can easily verify that the student has completed the safety course. This saves the employer time and money by not having to send the new employee to training.
