Assessing Credit for Your Organization’s Training

Thomas Edison State University has a long history of partnering with organizations and corporations to leverage their professional training and education programs into college credit.

Through a Professional Learning Review (PLR), the Office of Professional Learning Review (OPLR) evaluates your organization’s active training and education programs, professional licenses, certifications, certification exams, and other credentials for college credit. We then create roadmaps linking those credits to specific courses and identifying related degrees and certificates at the University.

Why Have a Professional Learning Review?

Conducting a PLR can transform your organization’s training and education programs, licenses, and credentials into college credit at Thomas Edison State University. PLRs are cost-effective and bring the value-added benefit of college credit to your organization’s educational endeavors.

  • Enhancing the skills of your staff gives your organization a competitive advantage
  • Enabling your employees to earn college credit for training they complete at work creates a strong recruitment and retention incentive

Increase the quality of your organization’s training program

  • Provides increased visibility and prestige in the marketplace for higher-level training
  • Provides academic currency at a regionally accredited institution for your organization’s training
  • Provides suggestions, as appropriate, on ways to enhance the academic value of your your training

Save on tuition and tuition reimbursement

  • When your staff can earn college credit for your organization’s training, you can save on tuition assistance or reimbursement costs
