If you pursue career and technical education in high school, you will graduate with a diploma and education in a specific career. That makes you a desirable job candidate, but earning your Pennsylvania Skills Certificate will make you even more attractive to potential employers. To do this, you must complete and pass a test that demonstrates technical skill and knowledge in your career program of study.
This certificate serves two purposes. It rewards you for good performance in your technical studies and is also a credential for obtaining a job after high school. Employers know that a prospective employee with a Pennsylvania Skills Certificate has the skills to do the job well. NOCTI is the assessment provider for all GCCTC programs offering students the opportunity to earn a certificate or certification in a technical area. All students are required to take the NOCTI assessment their senior year at GCCTC or upon completion of their program of study.
