NICET Updates


NICET's nationally recognized certification programs lay out a path for your career advancement from entry to senior level responsibilities. Designed by industry experts to provide engineering technology fields with a qualified workforce, our programs are increasingly used by employers and specifiers to measure job skills and knowledge. Since the Institute was founded in 1961, more than 135,000 technicians and technologists have met NICET's rigorous certification criteria, and the number grows rapidly as more employers and local and state governments rely on NICET certification to measure the qualifications of their workforce. By employing those workers who have demonstrated their technical mastery, employers can provide their customers higher quality goods and services. And, ultimately, the public enjoys a higher degree of safety and protection. The certification industry, like other industries, has developed standards that codify the best practices for the assessment of individual capabilities. These standards change over time. NICET wants to maintain the value of its certifications by keeping its tests current, both in terms of content and of certification standards and best practices. NICET certification can be used to plan and measure your career progress. If you are serious about your career, we're here to help.
