As the economy has changed over the last decade, so too have expectations of both employers and students as to what secondary and postsecondary institutions should provide for students to succeed in the workplace. The market is responding to this change by creating and expanding on new forms of credentialing.  As industry-backed credentials become more prevalent in the labor market, students will continue to demand these options from their schools. A number of states have responded by better aligning their curriculums to local industry needs and tying them to certifications.  Examples include: 

Colorado 
Florida 
Louisiana
