Skill Certificate Program initiatives provide statewide competency-based student assessments. Student skill attainment is measured by core standards and competencies needed to be successful in the workforce.
The core standards and competencies help improve programs, curriculum and instruction through the use of incentive-based, competency-based student assessment.
The Skill Certificate Program provides students with opportunities to receive instruction aligned with stands and standards set by the state of Utah and by industry. Students receive "skill certificates" verifying technical skill achievement.
Our vision is to give every student the opportunity to perform to the best of his or her ability by encouraging him or her to participate in a variety of skill tests that will aid in jump-starting careers through meaningful assessments allowing students to demonstrate appropriate skill sets that result in a high-quality credential with labor market value.
