NICET: Developing a Qualified Workforce

Even the most well-prepared project plan is only as good as the people who carry it out. Having a qualified workforce is essential to increasing productivity, quality, safety on the job site.

But how can you ensure that your workforce is made up of the most qualified individuals capable of ensuring public protection?

Through credentialing with the National Institute for Certification in Engineering Technologies (NICET), professionals in engineering technologies can set themselves apart as the most exceptional technicians in their field.

Join NICET’s Chip Hollis as he discusses the ways in which credentialed technicians earn certifications to further their careers, earn the respect and confidence of employers, and continue to safeguard the public.

During this behind the scenes look at certification and test development, you will learn how NICET examinations:

  • Distinguish the qualified from the not-yet qualified
  • Measure the knowledge and skills of individual test-takers
  • Administer exams that are fair, valid, reliable, and legally defensible

This webinar will also cover changes from the old paper-pencil work element model to the new computer-based standard model. Mr. Hollis will explain how NSPE’s credentialing arm is taking advantage of changes in technology to comply with certification best practices.
