NCCER Releases Gold Card for Certified Professionals

The National Center for Construction Education and Research (NCCER), Alachua, Fla., has released the Gold Card, a photo ID card for all candidates who earn a certification through one of NCCER's Mobile Crane Operator, Rigger and/or Signal Person Certification Programs.

The Gold Card provides each certified professional with a unique number that employers and inspectors can use to verify certification credentials in real time through NCCER's online verification.

NCCER Accredited Assessment Centers (AAC) are endorsed to deliver the certification programs, and can upload candidate photos directly into NCCER's Automated National Registry (ANR). The ANR then transmits the photos directly onto the printed, wallet-sized Gold Cards. By becoming an NCCER-endorsed AAC, organizations are able to deliver certification programs directly to their employees, members and clients with the flexibility to schedule them as personnel and equipment are available
