The Woodwork Career Alliance of North America issued its first Diamond credential to Patrick Molzahn, woodworking instructor at Madison College in Madison, Wis., at IWF 2018.

Molzahn, a founding member of the WCA’s Board of Directors, said in a statement that the experience of achieving the Diamond credential fulfilled a long-term goal.

“I use the WCA credentialing system to evaluate and reward my students,” Molzahn said. “I have long felt the need to test the efficacy of our credentialing system by experiencing it from the candidate’s perspective.

“For industry, the WCA credentialing system provides a template for recognizing and rewarding one’s skills. Moreover, employers can use the credentialing ladder to develop their talent and encourage continuing education.”
