Thoughout class, students may have the opportunity to start working in paid positions with BY Roads employer partners. These positions will provide students with the opportunity to work in the field and directly apply the learning from class on-the-job.

Performance Profiles

In addition to the modular exams, NCCER requires students to successfully complete in-person performance profiles for a number of the modules. These performance profiles require students to physically demonstrate their learning, rather than simply relying upon written test for certifications. These performance profiles must be conducted by NCCER-certified instructors in an in-person setting.
