Construction professionals: new career resources are here

Construction professionals seeking a career boost have a great new resource at Parker Williams Branch Library thanks to a grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Science and the Texas State Library & Archives Commission.

The grant enabled the library to purchase trainee guides in 15 different craft areas for area construction professionals seeking certification from the National Center for Construction and Education Research. NCCER certification is widely recognized in construction industries and indicates that workers have achieved journey-level status, which translates to higher pay and additional job opportunities.
