The Construction Core instructional program provides a foundation of knowledge to prepare students for employment or continued education in several occupations related to the construction industry. The curriculum framework for this program was developed in partnership with the Mississippi Construction Education Foundation (MCEF). MCEF is the accredited sponsor for the National Center for Construction Education and Research (NCCER).
When developing this curriculum, the authors recognized the importance of incorporating differentiated instruction and the needs of the 21st-century learners. Therefore, teaching strategies include a blend of online and face-to-face instruction that align with NCCER Connect e-books, online lectures, video presentations, online quizzes, active figures, and Spanish content. Students will have access to this information both to learn new content as well as to review, reinforce, or revise their work. Upon successful completion of the course students will be NCCER certified.
