PIPELINE TRAINING AND ASSESSMENT PROGRAM (PTAP): OPERATOR QUALIFICATION FOR LIQUID & GAS PIPELINES
NCCER has developed the PTAP in cooperation with API. PTAP consists of pipeline curriculum and pipeline skill assessments to qualify pipeline personnel under the Department of Transportation’s regulation for Pipeline Operator Qualification. The pipeline assessments are tied directly to NCCER’s standardized pipeline curriculum and will determine qualification on selected covered tasks as identified by API and the industry.
Mobile Crane Operator Certification
NCCER’s Mobile Crane Operator Certification Program consists of assessments and practical examinations that meet or exceed current ASME B30.5 consensus safety standards and OSHA 29 CFR 1926.1400.
Mobile Crane Endorsed Accredited Assessment Centers are able to deliver the certification program (assessments and practical examinations) to their employees/membership using their own equipment as personnel are available and time permits.
Currently Greater Michigan Construction Academy is the only NCCER endorsed Crane Accredited Assessment Center in the state of Michigan.
Skilled Trades training has benefited me by opening up opportunities at different companies that wouldn’t even take a second look if I hadn’t had a formal, post-secondary education. It gives me a leg up on anyone who just has a high school diploma.
