HBI has certification assessments for its award-winning Residential Construction Academy (RCA) and Pre-Apprenticeship Certificate Training (PACT) programs. Assessments are offered through a partnership with the National Occupational Competency Testing Institute (NOCTI), the nation’s leading provider of career and technical education technical industry-based credentials.
One of three construction credentials nationally approved by the U.S. Department of Labor and the only credential supported and recognized by the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) and its more than 700 State and Local Home Builders Association. HBI’s RCA and PACT curriculum meets Department of Labor criteria for qualifying credentials under the degree/certification attainment rate measure.
Individuals graduating from an HBI-licensed PACT and/or RCA program have the opportunity to enter the job market with an industry-recognized, portable, pre-apprenticeship credential, which is validated by HBI and NOCTI.
