LUBBOCK, Texas (October 27, 2020) – The Home Builders Association of Alabama (HBAA) Residential Construction Skills Certification is now available on the iCEV industry certification testing platform. The certification assesses 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

HBAA Residential Construction Skills Certification earners are more qualified and prepared to enter high-demand roles within the construction industry. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment of construction laborers and helpers is projected to grow 5 percent from 2019 to 2029, faster than the average for all occupations. The entire construction and extraction industry is projected to gain 296,300 new positions between 2019 and 2029. 

“We believe the HBAA Residential Construction Skills Certification will help individuals of all ages and skill levels find meaningful opportunities and will aid in the recruitment of skilled workers, thus helping to alleviate the shortage in the industry,” said Russell Davis, HBAA Executive Vice President.

iCEV is excited to host the HBAA Residential Construction Skills Certification and provide professional development opportunities for individuals interested in the construction industry. To earn the certification, candidates must pass a 100-question exam. iCEV offers optional study materials designed to prepare individuals to earn the HBAA Residential Construction Skills Certification.
