The Alaska Process Industry Careers Consortium (APICC) has become a sponsor for the National Center for Construction Education and Research (NCCER). The NCCER is a nonprofit that helps people build skills and earn credentials across the oil and gas, construction and mining industries.
Mandy Beaulieu who is with both APICC and NCCER, says it can be used at the high school level and then rolled into a postsecondary education. It can even be used to register for an apprenticeship and then utilized in a person’s chosen industry. The program is flexible and can be used by anyone in more than 70 trades within the industry. Those trades include carpentry, iron working, and welding to name a few.
