Technology Center (NTC) recently became an accredited training center for the National Center for Construction Education and Research (NCCER). This means that NTC is able to put students on a national database for employment and certify them for specific skills.

Also, NTC is now listed as an accredited training and educational facility.

This official certification includes the Afton, Pryor, and Kansas NTC Campuses.

Crossland Construction sponsored NTC to receive this accreditation.

 For the sponsorship, Crossland recommended that NTC was a reputable institution that should be accredited by the NCCER and helped NTC through the accreditation process.

Several NTC instructors across the district are now NCCER Certified Trainers, including Dan Ipock, Terry Clarkson, Eric Goodpastor, Wade Frieson, Lester Leak, and Bobby Lamont.

The National Center for Construction Education and Research (NCCER) is a not-for-profit education foundation created to develop industry-driven standardized craft training programs with portable credentials and help address the critical workforce shortage facing the construction industry.

Their mission is to build a safe, productive, and sustainable workforce of craft professionals.

Crossland Construction further assisted NTC by providing free Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) training to Afton and Kansas NTC students. A recent OSHA training session, taught by Travis Goodhue of Crossland, was attended by over 40 NTC students.

These students received general safety training and obtained their OSHA card.
