As part of the Industry Competency Model Initiative, ETA and industry partners collaborate to develop and maintain dynamic models of the foundational and technical competencies that are necessary in economically vital industries and sectors of the American economy. The goal of the effort is to promote an understanding of the skill sets and competencies that are essential to educate and train a globally competitive workforce.

The models serve as a resource to inform discussions among program planners, industry leaders, educators, economic developers, and public workforce investment professionals as they collaborate to:

  • Identify specific employer skill needs and tests that assess and verify work-related competencies
  • Develop competency-based curricula and training models
  • Develop industry-defined performance indicators, skill standards, and certifications, and
  • Develop resources for career exploration and guidance.

The Clearinghouse also allows customers to build their own industry model frameworks based on the competency model building blocks, which customers modify to meet their industry's needs.
