About PBA

Chartered in 1952, the Pennsylvania Builders Association is a nonprofit, professional trade organization representing 9,000-plus member-companies from across the state. PBA’s 500,000 individual members include builders, remodelers, material suppliers, subcontractors, consultants, lending institutions, utilities and others involved in the housing industry.

Endorsed Trade Program

PBA offers an endorsement program for specific construction programs offered by secondary schools in Pennsylvania. The program was developed to recognize superior construction programs in hopes of attracting qualified students to those programs. In addition, the program provides the members of PBA a level of assurance that students who complete training in an endorsed program have received instruction and training based on national skill standards in residential construction, thereby contributing to successful work force development for the homebuilding industry.

PBA Skills Certificate

The PBA Skills Certificate is a valuable credential offered to students graduating from Pennsylvania secondary trade programs in PBA endorsed schools. Students achieving a competent, or higher, score on Pennsylvania’s Occupational Competency Test administered through NOCTI are eligible to receive a PBA Skills Certificate.
