In Wisconsin, industry-recognized credentials are not only highly valued but incentivized

Wisconsin’s state education departments determined the top engineering and architectural design certifications students should earn for college and career-readiness as part of the Engineering & Technology CTE Pathway.

When students earn these industry-recognized credentials, schools get reimbursed through the Wisconsin CTE Incentive Grant. The grant reimburses school districts up to $1,000 for each student who earns an approved industry-recognized certification. It’s no wonder helping students earn engineering certifications is top-of-mind for educators across the state.
