Industry Recognized Credentials


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 to report these; this is sometimes referred to as "manually reporting" scores (please see 2019-20 Reporting Spreadsheet and Industry Recognized Credentials - Questions and Answers).

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.

For further information, please contact Dan Findley.
