Industry Licensing and Certifications

  • The workplace of today requires a highly skilled and competent workforce.   In order to ensure quality, many industries have developed nationally recognized standards of performance. These standards are measured by licensing examinations or certification testing programs that can lead to nationally recognized credentials.  Most of the career and technical programs at BCTC have undergone a rigorous accreditation review process and now offer industry recognized certifications for students. These certifications/credentials are portable and recognized nationally by industry. They provide a competitive edge when applying for employment and are recognized by many colleges for awarding advanced credit.

    Please refer to the “industry certification” heading under each program description for a complete listing of industry certifications that a student is required, expected or may have an option to earn. State regulations require all students completing an approved career and technical program earn industry recognized certificates or licenses.
