Speaking on Business: Precision Exams
Precision Exams is focused on connecting information taught in the classroom to real-world business and student goals.
This is Chris Redgrave for Zions Bank Speaking on Business.
One of the buzzwords surrounding education today is career and technical education. This growing part of public education has academically-rigorous programs focusing on areas that have traditionally been part of bachelor’s or associate degree programs that push students to be their best. Over 8 million high school students, nearly half the U.S. high school population, were enrolled in one or more CTE courses in 2016-2017, according to the most recent data collected.
Precision Exams is taking career and technical education to the next level by tying students’ success to something real-life, answering the age-old question students ask about when they’ll use the information they’re learning. So, Lehi-based Precision Exams is focused on connecting information taught in the classroom to real-world business and student goals, by housing over 170 different certifications geared toward industry and career technical education.
Founder Edson Barton started in the certification business years ago and realized the power standards held in shaping education. He was driven by the idea of providing outcomes for students that would prepare them for real-life businesses, so he founded Precision Exams. To give an idea of Precision Exam’s impact, the certifications they test on are administered in every state across the U.S., so high school students have the opportunity to receive a certification before graduation.
