Increase Your Completion Rate Using Stackable Certificates

Failure to complete academic credentials is a nationwide problem. Presenters from two National Science Foundation-funded ATE Centers show how they developed a stackable certificate plan that allows students to gain entry-level skills with as few as 6 to 16 units of IT courses and finish credentials in stages. This model is applicable to other workforce programs, as well. During the webinar, participants learn about a stackable certificate model they can adapt to fit different fields of specialty and career pathways, leave the session with strategies to implement this program on their home campuses, and learn how to develop metrics to measure the success of this initiative.
