2020-2021 industry-recognized credentials list available


The 2020-2021 list of industry-recognized credentials has been posted to the Ohio Department of Education’s website. As articulated in Each Child, Our Future, the state’s five-year strategic plan for education, Ohio is prioritizing opportunities for students to earn industry-recognized credentials that are sure to fuel their success after high school. 
To ensure Ohio maintains a relevant list of industry-recognized credentials, State Superintendent of Public Instruction Paolo DeMaria, in close collaboration with the Governor’s Office of Workforce Transformation, convenes an array of industry professionals to carefully and thoughtfully review all new industry-recognized credentials. These committees recommend credentials to add to the state’s recognized list.
If you have any questions about the list of approved industry credentials, please contact Patti Guseman, program administrator for industry-recognized credentials, at industrycredentials@education.ohio.gov.
