CAPE Industry Certification

Setting high standards and establishing measurable goals can improve individual outcomes in education to ensure that all students graduating from high school are prepared to continue postsecondary education, and have the competencies to enter the workforce.

  • Providing relevant coursework leading to industry certifications
  • Support local economic development
  • Provide  access to high-wage/high-demand careers
