2021-2022 industry-recognized credentials list available

The 2021-2022 list of industry-recognized credentials has been posted to the Ohio Department of Education’s website. As articulated in Each Child, Our Future, the state’s five-year strategic plan for education, Ohio is prioritizing opportunities for students to earn industry-recognized credentials that are sure to fuel their success after high school.

To ensure Ohio maintains a relevant list of industry-recognized credentials, Superintendent Paolo DeMaria, in close collaboration with the Governor’s Office of Workforce Transformation, convenes an array of appropriate industry professionals to carefully and thoughtfully review all new industry-recognized credentials. These committees recommend which credentials be added to the state’s recognized list.

For questions about the list of approved industry credentials, please contact Emma Nicholson, program administrator for industry-recognized credentials, at industrycredentials@education.ohio.gov.
