Industry recognized credentials are an important part of Career and Technical Education (CTE).
Industry Credentials are a required performance measure of the Arizona Perkins V State plan for the federal Perkins V grant.
As part of Arizona state legislation, for a CTE program to receive Career Technical Education District (CTED) funding, a CTE program must lead to certification or licensure as appropriate.
The College and Career Readiness Index (School A-F) generates .5 up to 1.0/2.0 points, for students who obtain an industry-recognized credential.
Additional legislation, the Arizona Industry Incentive Fund, has provided funding based on students who obtain an industry credential, limited to specific CTE programs in high demand industry sectors.
