Stackable Industry and Educational Certificates – Students can also take as part of their pathway a series of courses that will lead to industry recognized certificates in different technical areas. The U.S. Department of Labor defines stackable certificates as “a sequence of certificates that can be accumulated over time to build up an individual’s qualifications and help them to move along a career pathway or up a career ladder to different and potentially higher paying jobs.”
