CTE Industry Recognized Credentials


This page provides resources regarding CTE Industry Recognized Credentials (IRCs) and was updated June 2022.

CTE IRCs are tracked as a part of the Secondary Career Pathways process—an Oregon state grant/article of legislation. CTE IRCs are not a component of the federal Perkins V grant, nor the Perkins V Performance Indicators.

Use of CTE IRC codes is established through a process that begins with schools requesting a given Industry Recognized Credential be recognized as part of their CTE POS curriculum. This request is first submitted to the appropriate Education Specialist for the program. 

To request addition of a completely new CTE IRC, contact the CTE program's Education Specialist and use the Request to Add Approved Credentials document.

Please Note: We are working on improving this page and the way we do IRCs. While this may lead to some things being temporarily difficult to find, there is a solution. To view the current list of Industry Recognized Credentials, please visit the public-facing IRC Lookup Table. For convenience, export options are available to generate both an Excel and a PDF version.

For further information, please contact Dan Findley.
