School Time is Lab Time
and we are here to help you do it safely!

By its very nature, skilled trades Career Technical Education (CTE) is complex. Now, with COVID-19 impacting everything we do, it has become more difficult than ever. That’s why CCAR and NCCER, with support from Electude, have partnered to create a set of guidelines and resources to deliver skilled trades education in a way that is safe and effective for both instructors and students.

We have created a set of guidelines to assist in providing a safe lab experience for students and instructors, a recommended shop supply list, a participant acknowledgement statement, and a daily participant questionnaire. Also, there are additional resources specific for automotive classes and construction.

While it’s a vastly different world than this time last year, we’ve got you covered.
