SkillsUSA and PrintEd

PrintED and SkillsUSA Partner to SkillsUSA Career Essentials: Assessments

To provide students with credentials that validate their mastery of competencies, and to help meet government education requirements, GAERF and SkillsUSA have established a partnership to offer online PrintED/SkillsUSA  SkillsUSA Career Essentials: Assessments. These examinations test technical skills and knowledge with interactive questions enriched by animations, videos, drawings and photographs.

Students who achieve a passing score on any of the SkillsUSA/PrintED Co-branded assessments will be awarded a PrintED/SkillsUSA Student Certification in that subject area and the certificate will display GAERF, PrintED, and SkillsUSA logos. The certificate will be valid for two years past the date of the certificate.
