Employers asked to complete credential survey

Help determine which industry-recognized credentials are on Ohio’s list

Information provided by Ohio Department of Education and the Governor’s Office of Workforce Transformation

The Ohio Department of Education and the Governor’s Office of Workforce Transformation request employers assistance in the industry-recognized credential review process for Ohio’s high school credential list. A survey has been developed to gather feedback that will be used in determining which credentials are valuable in their respective industries. The survey should take approximately 10 minutes to complete.

Students benefit from learning job-specific skills that can be used to verify skill mastery and educational attainment. Industry-recognized credentials are also valuable to employers, allowing them to validate the knowledge and skills of potential employees and saving valuable time in assessing the competency of job applicants.

The process to review industry-recognized credentials requires business and industry representatives who 1) possess knowledge of the career field and 2) have some understanding of human resource and hiring needs. Reviewers are not required to have prior knowledge of the review process or experience with the list of industry-recognized credentials.

For information regarding the survey or review process, please contact the credential team at IndustryCredentials@education.ohio.gov.

The survey will remain open through November 6, 2020.
