At Adair County High School, student certifications have become a defining factor when classifying students as career-ready. By implementing the industry certification program powered by iCEV, Randy Rexroat and Kirby Hancock, Agriculture Educators at Adair County High School in Columbia, Kentucky, are filling a major gap in their career-readiness goals.
“We were lacking an accurate guide for instruction to prepare students for prior assessments,” Hancock said. “However, the lessons, videos, activities and quizzes within iCEV do a really good job preparing students for the final certification exam.”
Through the iCEV platform, students have the opportunity to earn certifications such as the Bayer CropScience Plant Science Certification, the Elanco Fundamentals of Animal Science Certification and the American Meat Science Association’s Food Safety and Science Certification. All three certifications are state-approved and meet the requirement for career-readiness. Additionally, students can earn the certifications while they complete their regular coursework and gain concrete, evidenced skills to include on their résumé
