Work and Education Credentials in US – They go together

Work credentials can serve as an alternative or supplement to education credentials. Work credentials include occupational licenses and certifications; education credentials include diplomas, degrees, and educational certificates. Both types of credentials attest that a person has the skills needed to perform a job. However, a license is issued by a government agency (often a state board), while a certification is typically issued by a professional or trade organization. New national data show that over one in five adults (22 percent) report having a work credential (figure 1). Overall, 71 percent of these credentialed adults report that their most recent credential is a license and 29 percent report that it is a certification.
