Industry Certifications


Industry-recognized certifications/credentials offer a strategy for improving instruction and signaling that students have acquired a defined set of technical skills and knowledge. Industry-recognized credentials can help students find skilled employment and give them the option of later returning to school for a higher degree. Employers also benefit from a more highly skilled workforce with certifiable skills. 

Earning an industry-recognized certification can provide students with many benefits including:

Foundational Skills

Students attain skills needed for that industry and can prove those skills with a certificate.

Student Engagement

Students are more likely to not miss school and be more engaged in the learning process.


Anchors for Career Pathways

Certifications plant the seed for the students to be successful in their selected career path.


Competitive Workforce

Certifications make the students more employable and often times earn higher wages.
