What is NC3?
The National Coalition of Certification Centers (NC3) was established to address the need for strong industry partnerships with educational institutions in order to develop, implement and sustain industry-recognized portable certifications that have strong validation and assessment standards.
Leading colleges and industry partners have developed a comprehensive, turnkey workforce development program for training and professional certification. NC3 members are provided with expert consultation – from the tools and equipment, to facility planning, faculty training, and the support necessary for professional certification program.
This network has aided technical colleges in developing the necessary course offerings for students to not only complete graduation, but also to acquire professional certification while they are in the program.
