Credentialing
  • CREDENTIALS

    CRI - Career Readiness Indicator (Credential or Certification)
    Industry-recognized credentials ensure that Alabama students graduate from high school globally competitive for work and postsecondary education with validated 21st century skills.

    Credentialing makes a difference for AL high school students

    • Validates knowledge of skill attainment
    • Increases student confidence
    • Often means higher earning potential
    • Opens the door for networking in a career field
    • Sets students apart from the competition
    • Demonstrates commitment to continuous learning

    Credentials provide students with the documented skills they need to compete in today’s economic environment.

Alabama’s transition to credentialing supports the public schools by producing globally competitive students with 21st century skills. Credentialing opportunities are available in all CTE program areas
