Who We Are
We are a network of institutions, employers, and experts who believe competency-based learning can unlock opportunities for today’s learners.
THE POWER OF COMPETENCY-BASED LEARNING
With our competency based programs, we develop and support learning that focuses on true competency—what an individual knows and can do—rather than on proxies for knowledge and skills. In doing so, we believe we can make postsecondary education and training more flexible, responsive, and valuable for learners and employers.

Serve today’s diverse learners more effectively by offering more accessible, affordable and responsive programs.
Connect to Careers
Improve connections between education and work by focusing on career-relevant competencies.
Enables learners to develop and demonstrate knowledge, skills, and behaviors for specific careers.
Increase Access for Today's Learners

Reduce Time & Cost
Make education and training more affordable and flexible by allowing learners to progress at their own pace.
What we Do
