Five high school teachers were recently certified as Woodwork Career Alliance skill evaluators at Madison Area Technical College in Madison, Wis. The teachers are now certified to award WCA credentials to their students.
Wisconsin has the second largest number of trained skill evaluators in the country, according to the WCA.
The Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development recently recognized WCA credentials as eligible for Act 59 funding, meaning high schools in the state can now receive up to $1,000 per student for each credential awarded.
