NCCER Training and Assessment Center
Bevel Tech Group, Inc Achieves Accreditation as a NCCER Training and Assessment Center
In late 2013, Kevin Bourgeois, Owner and Operations Manager of Bevel Tech Group, Inc, set a goal for his company to become an accredited NCCER (National Center for Construction Education and Research) training and assessment center.
Kevin’s idea was to offer NCCER training and certification for employees interested in advancing their skills while employed at Bevel Tech Group, Inc. Each interested employee would follow a structured NCCER training program under the instructions and guidance of Mike Murray, a certified NCCER instructor, millwright and supervisor for Bevel Tech Group, Inc.
In early 2014, Bevel Tech Group, Inc. began the process to establish and finalize all the NCCER requirements to become accredited. This included Mike Murray and Mary Bourgeois completing the NCCER (Master Trainer, Training Sponsor and Administrator Certification) training program.
It also included setting up a training and assessment center that meets NCCER guidelines. In mid 2014, Bevel Tech Group, Inc. obtained “candidate” status from NCCER, after establishing all the necessary pre-qualification requirements, and began training and assessing employees. On July 31st, 2015, Bevel Tech Group, Inc. passed the NCCER audit and, on August 13th, 2015, proudly became a NCCER Accredited Training and Assessment Center.
