Event Details

There are over 738,000+ Credentials Offered in the U.S.- How do Employers Know What's What? Despite increased attention on the need for education and training as a foundation for social and economic security as well as a nationwide expansion in education and training opportunities, the country has never had a good estimate of the number of credentials, much less a strong accounting of their various characteristics and potential returns. Join Deb Everhart of the Credential Engine as she leads a discussion about the need for credentials and how to navigate the options available.
