7 Exciting Things that Happened in 2017

As we head into 2018, it is a time for reflection. Last year offered many opportunities for us to serve and educate the future of the modern workforce. Here are 7 exciting things iCEV did in 2017.

1. Certified 5,000 Students!

Last year, 5,000 students earned industry certifications hosted on the iCEV platform. Team iCEV recognized schools who had over 10 students earn certifications by awarding them wall mounts. We loved seeing how excited students were when they saw their names listed!

2. Launched the Certify10k Campaign.

Thousands of CTE professionals came together during the 2016-17 school year to certify 5,000 students with certifications hosted on the iCEV platform. This year, we want to prepare twice as many students for future careers. Through our Certify10k campaign, we've set a goal to double that number by certifying 10,000 students during the 2017 - 2018 school year.

3. Added New Content

iCEV is constantly being updated with new courses and lessons. This year, we introduced six new courses including Forensic ScienceLaw EnforcementSocial Media MarketingInstructional Practices in Education & Training and more.

4. Added a New Certification

Last year, we added the Equipment & Engine Training Council (EETC) Principles of Small Engine Technology Certification to the iCEV testing platform. EETC created this certification to address the need for formal training opportunities and the shortage of qualified technicians in the small engine and power equipment industry.
