This page provides resources regarding Industry Recognized Credentials.
Update: July 2020
ODE is currently working on improved processes and reporting for IRCs. Those seeking to report credentials earned may find that a particular IRC is not available in the online data system. Please use the current data reporting sheet (linked below) to report these; this is sometimes referred to as "manually reporting" scores (please see the "2019-20 Reporting Spreadsheet" and the "Industry Recognized Credentials - Questions and Answers" linked on this page).
Requesting a New IRC
For those seeking to add a new credential, please check the current offerings arranged by skill area as linked from this page. Also, please read and pay particular attention to the Credential Recommendation Process provided in the "Request to Add Approved Credentials" document. You will find everything you need to evaluate your proposed credential against the criteria and complete the process for adding that credential, if appropriate.
