WTCS Certification

Introduction to Wisconsin Technical College System Certification

Certification is an effort to insure quality education. The state has a responsibility to make certain that all citizens of the state, regardless of their area of residence, have the opportunity for quality education.

Occupational competence of occupational instructors in the technical college system is assured by requiring a specific amount of appropriate occupational experience. This occupational experience must be in a target job of the program in which the instructor is teaching.

Completion of a college degree with a specific major or a required number of credits toward a major has been traditionally recognized as a measure of academic competence when certification is granted for academic instructors. This method is followed in the technical college system for certification of academic instructors.

Most educational systems, including the WTCS, require transcripts from individuals as part of the certification process. The WTCS places the same importance upon the value of occupational experience. WTCS certification requires written verification of occupational experience from present or previous employers
