Confronting the Skills Crisis And Workforce
Challenges of the New World Economy

  • The skills crisis threatens our economy and standard of living.
  • There is a sense of urgency that we must do something quickly to address the skills shortage in our current and emerging workforce if we are to remain successful in the global economy.
  • Many hundreds of thousands of dollars are spent annually by employers, governors, state agencies, and educators to develop and implement training and credentialing programs to certify both the technical and employability skills of incumbent and potential employees.
  • There is often confusion as to exactly what skills are needed and what credentialing programs are available or might be developed.
  • As the effects of globalization are felt in every facet of our economy, employers and career seekers are sometimes confused by the number and variety of training and certification programs available.
    The National Organization for Career Credentialing (NOCC) supports connectivity between education, economic, and workforce development through the use of career skills credentialing. This is achieved through:
      • National networking of professionals
      • Informational newsletters
      • Presentations
      • Web hosting and maintenance
