10 Tips on Embedding Industry and Professional Certifications in Education Programs - Holly Zanville, Evolllution

More and more of today’s students stand to benefit from a promising new trend: certification-embedded education programs. These are partnerships between education institutions and industry and professional associations that stack industry certifications within education programs. The practice lets learners simultaneously obtain marketable industry certification(s) and education credentials such as degrees, diplomas and certificates. The certifications are not typically awarded for completing an education program based on students’ seat time and grades; rather, they’re awarded through assessment and validation that the learner has indeed achieved specific learning outcomes or attained a defined level of knowledge or skill relative to a given industry standard. http://evolllution.com/revenue-streams/professional_development/10-tips-on-embedding-industry-and-professional-certifications-in-education-programs/
