Definition

Older Youth: Credential/Certificate Rate: Definition


The following definitions only apply to those beginning services after July 1, 2006 (see key definition below)

  1. Certificate
    Awarded in recognition of an individual’s attainment of measurable technical or occupational skills necessary to gain employment or advance within an occupation. These technical or occupational skills are based on standards developed or endorsed by employers. Certificates awarded by workforce investment boards or for generic pre-employment or work readiness skills are NOT included. Awarding entities include state educational agencies; college, tribal college, or proprietary school; professional, industry, employer organization; public regulatory agency; registered apprenticeship program; Job Corps; or education and training program approved by Dept. of Veterans Affairs.
  2. Advanced training/occupational skills training
    An organized program of study that provides specific vocational skills that lead to proficiency in performing actual tasks and technical functions required by certain occupational fields at entry, intermediate, or advanced levels. Such training should: 1) be outcome-oriented and focused on a long-term goal as specified in the Individual Service Strategy, 2) coincide with exit rather than short-term training that is part of services received while enrolled, and 3) result in attainment of a certificate (as defined below).
