A business-led approach to skill tracking

Previous approaches to micro-credentialing have fallen flat and have not obtained wide-spread use or understanding among industry. This initiative would create an industry-led system for micro-credentialing to be used by the school district, workforce centers, community college, and even universities. It would support a comprehensive approach to regionally recognized skills.
