OhioTechNet to Bridge the Skills Gap with PLA Platform

The Ohio Technical Skills Innovation Network consortium, spearheaded by Lorain County Community College and in partnership with the Departments of Higher Education and Job and Family Services, has chosen AcademyOne’s prior learning assessment platform to advance their statewide PLA initiative. Integrated within the OhioMeansJobs online career counseling portal, the workflow solution will advise adults who aspire to return to college about how they can earn credit for what they already know.

The pilot project will encompass the OTN’s 11 participating community colleges and support their efforts to close the disconnect between a trained, educated advanced manufacturing workforce and growing job demand spanning over 290 employers in the state’s 71 counties.
