Certifications as a Vehicle for Increasing Labor-Market Mobility

The current and potential roles for industry and professional certifications as a vehicle for increasing labor-market mobility is the focus of a two-year study with Corporation for a Skilled Workforce and George Washington Institute of Public Policy, funded by Lumina Foundation. The research will also uncover where certifications present the risk of being dead-end credentials that can limit access to opportunity, and how to instead ensure certifications serve as part of lifelong pathways for advancement. An initial paper will be published in fall 2020, and the final results in fall 2021.
