5 Key Strategies to Developing a Workforce-Relevant Digital Credentialing Program image

Credly, an IACET partner, has developed an outstanding field guide that provides an outline of strategies to help any training provider develop and launch a workforce-relevant digital credentialing program that is responsive to the needs of local employers and the regional economy. By creating courses that are directly aligned with the needs of local businesses, and then recognizing the skills learned through those courses with digital credentials, you'll learn how an agile approach to education and employment makes a significant impact on the local economy. There are real examples of school systems who have implemented this program, including the Colorado Community College System. 

Education providers who follow the advice embedded in this field guide will learn tactics that will empower their students, employees, members, and stakeholders to successfully navigate the modern labor market with verifiable knowledge and skills.

This guide is divided into five key strategies:

     1. Build a Team of Badge Champions

     2. Identify Priority Industries or Employers

     3. Create an Onboarding Program

     4. Issue Credentials

     5. Conduct After-Action Reviews
