The Master Credentials List serves as a public and transparent inventory of state-approved credentials of value, directs the use of federal and state funds for workforce education and training programs that lead to approved credentials of value, and guides workforce education and training programs by informing the public of the credentials that have value in the current or future job market. The following Master Credentials Lists are active from July 1 through June 30 of the following year.
The Master Credentials List application is open year-round for Florida school districts, Florida College System institutions and local workforce development boards to submit credentials for consideration for the Master Credentials List. The following types of credentials may be submitted for consideration via the application: Advanced Technical Certificates, career certificates, college credit certificates, industry certifications, Registered Apprenticeship certificates, licenses, Applied Technology Diplomas, Associate in Applied Science degrees, and Associate in Science degrees. Credentials submitted through the online application will be evaluated against the Framework of Quality and consideredby the Credentials Review Committee for inclusion on the Master Credentials List on a quarterly basis.
