As economic growth continues in the Coastal Bend and the industrial job market booms, Del Mar College is offering an industry-recognized credentialing course that will help job seekers stand out from the crowd.

The 70-hour course, NCCER Core Curriculum Credentials with OSHA 10 Credentials, is sanctioned by the National Center for Construction Education and Research and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration.

According to Dara Betz, DMC program manager for Workforce Programs – Corporate Services, NCCER and OSHA 10 credentials are extremely sought after by oil and gas companies, industrial plants and manufacturers. “Completing this prerequisite core curriculum gives the trainee the credentials needed to continue education in any NCCER craft area he or she chooses,” said Betz.

Classes are scheduled from 8:00 AM to 6:00 PM Saturdays from August 18th to October 6th at DMC’s West Campus (Old Brownsville and Airport roads). The cost is $300.

To register, call (361) 698-1328 or go by the DMC Center for Economic Development (3209 S. Staples St.).

The course covers topics such as safety, rigging, construction math and drawings and hands-on training. NCCER credentials are recognized in the private and government industrial sectors as the standard for the training, assessment, certification and career development of construction and maintenance craftspersons. Bechtel, Flint Hills Resources, Chemours and Valero are just a few of the local companies that recognize NCCER credentials.
