National Academy Of Construction Trades

What is NACT?

NACT, is short for the National Academy Of Construction Trades.  In 2018 our organization was formed to improve the service and quality of construction and other skilled trades by testing and certifying trade professionals through proven education. 

What Does NACT Do?

NACT promotes excellence in construction and other skilled trades. NACT Certified Professionals work in every part of construction and home improvement industries. The NACT certifies our technicians and service professionals, not the company they may work for.

Why Does NACT Exist?

NACT protects the service consumer, service company owner, and the trained technicians. NACT tests and certifies construction professionals so that company owners and their service customers can better gauge a technicians level of expertise ahead of contracting the company for services. We certify the construction or trades professional so they can offer evident proof of their technical knowledge. NACT Certification testing means peace of mind for service managers and their customers.

How Does NACT Certification Work?

In addition to passing an NACT Certification test, our technicians must have two years of on the job training or one year of on the job training and a two-year degree in construction or an other applicable trade to qualify for certification.  

The tests are meant to be challenging. Two out of every three test-takers pass on their first attempt. To remain NACT certified, professionals must retest every five years to keep up with ever-advancing construction and trades technology.

Who Writes NACT Certification Tests?

NACT Certification tests are written in workshops by a national panel of seasoned construction industry professionals and executives, including working technicians, parts manufacturers, aftermarket manufacturers and educators. No one at NACT influences the tests.
