Industry Certifications

  • The Value and Role of Industry-Based Certifications

    For students who are planning on immediately entering the workforce, IBCs can offer attractive benefits in the form of a valuable credential that can provide a competitive edge. IBCs also provide employers with a standard that is useful in evaluating and "benchmarking" a candidate who has no substantial work experience.

    An IBC, by definition, is based on a workplace analysis of proficiency needs within an occupation or a technical area that reflects performance requirements of employers in an industry. Equipping students with relevant industry recognized certifications and licensures is one more way to insure that the CTE programs in Texas can prepare students for the industries of the 21st Century.

    Certifications vary by school. See your CTE Catalog, visit with your CTE teacher(s) or Career Counselor for further assistance.
