Occupational Licensing Revisions
This bill will allow training programs and apprenticeships to pursue a competency-based approach to licensure. Competency based education is a method of education that has checks in place to measure that a certain competency level in the course material is attained. Currently hours-based education only counts time spent on materials with no proof of subject matter learned. Adding options to licensure will help Utahns get to work and provide for their families when traditional education methods may be time or financially prohibitive.
