Credentials and Articulation Agreement


CTE Industry Recognized Credentials

Many CTE Courses offer an industry credential certification which is free to our students and counts as the Proof of Learning.

The attainment of an industry-recognized credential ensures that students graduate from high school globally competitive for work and postsecondary education.

An industry-recognized certification or credential helps businesses: 

  • Save many hours of training time because their new hire is already trained.
  • Be confident that the credential holder has already learned a specific set of skills.

An industry-recognized certification or credential helps students:

  • Validate their knowledge and skill attainment with an industry-recognized certification.
  • Stand out in a field of job applicants.
  • Start at a higher salary level.
