The Adult Diploma Program provides job training and an alternate pathway for adults, ages 20 or older, to earn an industry-recognized credential aligned to one of Ohio’s in-demand jobs. After passing the WorkKeys assessment, course requirements, and credential assessments, the applicant will be awarded a state-issued high school diploma.
What makes this program different from a traditional high school setting is the delivery of instruction to adults. Instead of measuring academic achievement through clock hours, seat time or credits earned, the focus is on a competency-based approach. Once competencies have been learned, adults then demonstrate mastery of skill. Each eligible adult works with the provider to create a customized student success plan.
Warren County Career Center has offered the Adult Diploma Program since the 2015-16 pilot year. The students enroll in the program through our Aspire Division where they receive instruction and preparation for the required assessments and training that follows. Upon successfully meeting the assessment requirement, students then enroll in a high demand training program where they will receive a credential that leads to employment.
