Join an industry-recognized cohort of trained career navigators

Skilling America is an industry-validated certification program that provides training in all the areas most important to the success of a career navigator. The training topics focus on the four critical domains of talent development: career coaching, partnership development, labor market and job analysis, and leadership, equipping navigators to move clients and communities toward financial independence (or toward economic mobility).

Skilling America also provides the opportunity for navigators to connect with a network of professionals and local partners all working toward advancing their communities toward economic mobility.

The American workforce needs professionals who can help their communities unlock access to better jobs. Learn how to lead the way with Skilling America.
