Office for Assessment of Professional and Workplace Learning
The Office for Assessment of Professional and Workplace Learning was established to conduct academic reviews of specific training, apprenticeships, courses, licenses, certifications and exams that may result in an award of college credit. The Center works with organizations to assess their specialized training programs that the College has evaluated for college credit, providing a value-added benefit to their employees, clients, and/or students.
Thomas Edison State College can help students finish their degree faster by awarding college credit for training and apprenticeships they have completed.
Students may be able to earn credit for professional licenses and certifications; courses and training completed at the workplace; through corporations, government agencies, professional associations, unions; or through specialized training programs that the College has been evaluated for college credit.
