The Career and Professional Education (CAPE) Act was created by the Florida Legislature in 2007 with the intent to improve Florida’s talent pipeline in order to better attract and retain targeted, high-value industries and to develop a knowledge-based economy. It seeks to ensure that education, industry, workforce and economic development partners in every community are collaborating to create new and meaningful opportunities for students. By providing students with cutting-edge training and earned industry certifications required for high-skill, high-wage jobs in Florida’s target and infrastructure industries, CAPE supports diversification of the state economy.
