The US Department of Labor’s Employment and Training Administration (ETA) and the Associated General Contractors of America (AGC) have announced the release of a new Commercial and Industrial Construction Competency Model that provides a set of guidelines that the construction industry can use to help create a better workforce for the future. The AGC and industry leaders have agreed to keep these guidelines updated as a key source for construction companies and individuals alike to use to create career paths for the industry.
In an AGC press release last Friday, Stephen Sandherr, chief executive officer of the Associated General Contractors of America stated “The next generation of construction workers needs the best training programs possible. Improving these programs will ensure that workers stay at the cutting edge of the construction industry.”
The pyramid offers guidelines and resources for specific skill sets. This model will work well with the NCCER certifications and adds to the knowledge base for the future industry workforce.
