The Construction Education Foundation of MN (CEF of MN), which is the educational entity of MN/ND ABC, has partnered with NCCER (National Center for Construction Education & Research) to provide a wide array of educational services. We are able to offer instructor certification classes, assessment testing and in-house training setup assistance to best utilize NCCER services.

We are an NCCER Accredited Training Sponsor and can help you with instructor certification, written assessments and/or performance profiles so your employees can become Operator Qualified.
