According to Georgetown University Center on Education and Workforce, professional certifications are the second most common post-secondary award in the United States. Over one million certifications are awarded each year. One-third of certificate holders also have an associate, bachelor’s or graduate degree. One driver is the reported shortage of skilled workers. Corporations are responding to this shortage by certifying their employees, suppliers, and after-market partners as a way to recruit, develop, and identify qualified workers across their supply chain. Trade associations are developing micro-credentials and certifications to provide career ladders to new recruits. In the process corporations and trade associations are challenging certification industry accreditation standards, especially the separation of training and assessment. They are also experimenting with innovative assessment methods including performance-based and serious games. Join our speaker to find out more and get examples of how credentials are being used to address a shortage in skilled workers.
