Certification & Certificates
Students participating in Career and Technical Education (CTE) programs can demonstrate their skills to potential employers by earning an industry credential. Many CTE programs provide students the opportunity to earn industry certifications by taking assessments developed by trade associations or industry groups.
Certifications indicate mastery or competency in specific knowledge, skills or processes that can be measured against a set of industry standards. Nearly all of these certifications are nationally recognized as credentials that prepare students for the globally competitive economy.
