Suggest industry credentials for students to earn by Aug. 30

8/3/2020

Businesses in virtually every industry are struggling to find workers who have the academic, technical and professional skills to consistently excel and succeed in the workplace. The Ohio Department of Education, in collaboration with the Governor’s Office of Workforce Transformation, has developed a new application process for submitting industry-recognized credentials to the approved list for graduation. Community stakeholders, including schools, parents, students and businesses, may suggest industry credentials for consideration by completing an application. The application process will cycle four times yearly, but the application will always remain open. Applications for this quarter are due Aug. 30. Approved credentials from this quarter will be available to students for the 2021-2022 school year. For more information and to complete an application, click here. Questions may be directed to industrycredentials@education.ohio.gov.
