The Free Certificate Movement

Mary Alice McCarthy was quoted by Inside Higher Ed regarding the value of certificates that lead to occupational licenses or industry certifications:

“Even the credits from a stackable certificate will often not be transfer worthy after a few years,” said Mary Alice McCarthy, director of the Center on Education and Skills for New America. “That’s one reason why certificates that lead to occupational licenses or industry certifications can be more valuable than just stand-alone certificates, even if they are for credit.”
