The ROI of Industry-Recognized Credentials

Are industry credentials a solution to closing the skills gap? Not all industry credentials are created (or valued) equally, nor do all states measure the impact of credential attainment on long-term outcomes, such as employment and earnings. This session shares the initial findings from a partnership between ExcelinEd and Burning Glass Technologies to understand how states collect, analyze, and leverage industry credential and labor market data to ensure students are truly career ready.
