LUBBOCK, Texas (October 20, 2019) – The Home Builders Association of Alabama (HBAA) Residential Construction Skills Certification will be available on the iCEV testing platform in fall 2020. The certification will assess the knowledge and skills necessary to be a productive worker on a residential construction job site. The certification is based on the following industry standards developed by the HBAA:
• Building Components
• Building Trades
• Safety & Health
Those who earn the HBAA Residential Construction Skills Certification are more qualified and prepared to enter high-demand roles within the construction industry. According to the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, 91 percent of construction managers and contractors report difficulty finding well-trained employees.
“The Home Builders Association of Alabama is proud to offer the Residential Construction Skills Certification. We believe this certification will be a valuable tool to construction workers and employers,” said Kory L. Boling, Foundation Executive Director of Home Builders Association of Alabama.
