Industry certifications validate students' knowledge and skills, infuse career readiness into the classroom and jump-start students' careers. Certifications can be easily integrated into an established curriculum or earned through independent study.
Because industry certifications are based on real-world industry standards, students who earn certifications are more likely to experience academic and career success. Certification earners often achieve higher grades, secure better employment opportunities and earn higher wages.
See how certifications are positively impacting students and CTE programs in the featured "Certifications in Action" video.
