Industry Credentials

Industry Credentials

Industry credentials (IC) are earned through secondary and postsecondary career and technical education programs and courses. High school students are encouraged to focus their elective credits on robust, career-aligned learning pathways.

Robust learning pathways should culminate with the achievement of nationally recognized industry credentials, meaningful work based learning experiences, and/or attainment of postsecondary credit hours through early postsecondary opportunities.

All approved Industry Credentials are aligned with postsecondary and employment opportunities and with the competencies and skills that students will have acquired through their chosen Academy and programs of study.
