Help determine which industry-recognized credentials are on Ohio’s list
The Governor’s Office of Workforce Transformation and the Ohio Department of Education has requested the assistance of Ohio entrepreneurs in the industry-recognized credential review process for Ohio’s high school credential list. A survey has been developed to gather feedback that will be used in determining which credentials are valuable in their respective industries. The survey should take approximately only 5 minutes to complete.
Students benefit from learning job-specific skills that can be used to verify skill mastery and educational attainment. Industry-recognized credentials are also valuable to employers, allowing them to validate the knowledge and skills of potential employees and saving valuable time in assessing the competency of job applicants.
The process to review industry-recognized credentials requires business and industry representatives who 1) possess knowledge of the career field and 2) have some understanding of human resource and hiring needs. Reviewers are not required to have prior knowledge of the review process or experience with the list of industry-recognized credentials.
