In today's competitive labor market, workforce training organizations face real challenges preparing their clients for careers in high-demand occupations. Job-seekers must not only have the skill to do a job, they also must possess a related industry-credential. For example, 11.5 of the 11.6 million jobs created since 2008 have gone to workers with some level of postsecondary education – this includes those who've taken postsecondary courses or completed a postsecondary diploma, certificate or degree program1.
Workforce organizations must improve clients' skills, help them earn diplomas and certifications, and prepare them for industry-recognized certification exams in order to increase their employability. And, they need to do it quickly.
