New Industry Credentials Announced

The Ohio Department of Education, jointly with the Governor’s Office of Workforce Transformation, has released additions to its Fiscal Year 2020 Industry-Recognized Credential List. These credentials are available immediately for students to earn as points toward graduation this year.

A panel of industry professionals reviewed all currently approved credentials, as well as all credential applications received in spring and summer 2019. The industry panel did not recommend removing any currently approved industry-recognized credentials from the 2019-2020 list.

The approved credential additions are detailed here. The Department will post an updated FY20 Industry-Recognized Credential List in the coming weeks.
