It’s Green Training for Job Corps

Effective Oct. 1, all Job Corps center-operated construction, advanced manufacturing, and automotive training programs are required to implement the Job Corps’ newly green Training Achievement Records (TARs). These TARs incorporate green elements based on NCCER’s “Your Role in the Green Environment” and were validated by a work group of industry experts and Job Corps management and construction instructors.

Under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, Job Corps has committed to producing 8,500 green graduates from all of its construction programs by August 2010. To implement the Green Construction TARs, Job Corps has communicated out to its centers the importance of acquiring NCCER accreditation in order to be able to certify students completing these TARS.

Through the NCCER accreditation process, instructors can obtain certification to enable students to receive industry-recognized credentials and documentation of their training accomplishments through NCCER’s National Registry.
