About Prior Learning Assessment

Prior Learning Assessment awards college credit to potential students for training and skills acquired outside the classroom. The series will be especially helpful for the over 1,000 adult workers who have expressed interest in furthering their education through the President’s Opportunity Training Initiative for unemployed workers.
