Health care services in Minnesota are world renowned. Minnesota ranks among the top four in the nation for high-quality and low-cost hospital and health care. Minnesota’s 143 hospitals and health systems employ more than 121,000 people. Four of the 10 largest employers in the state are in health-care delivery. Further, Minnesota continues to be a leading venue for the medical device industry.

Given Health Care’s importance in Minnesota, the PIPELINE program works with the industry to determine workforce needs and create tools to address those needs as seen in the competency models for in-demand occupations that are well-suited to dual-training opportunities.

Validated occupational competency summaries

Related Instruction Inventory

The health care services Related Instruction Inventory can be used by employers to develop a dual-training program (M.S. 136A.246 subd. 3). The inventory includes known education or training programs related to approved dual-training occupations. The inventory also indicates whether or not the program has been mapped to industry specific competencies. Employers are not required to partner with the training providers on this list. An education or training provider that would like to be included on the inventory can follow the Competency Mapping Instructions.
