Related Instruction Inventory

The information technology Related Instruction Inventory can be used by employers to develop a dual-training program (M.S. 136A.246 subd. 3). This inventory includes known education and training program options for approved dual training occupations. Each program indicates whether it has been mapped to industry specific competencies. (Employers are not required to partner with the training providers on this list—these are simply options.) 

An education or training provider that would like to be included on the inventory can follow the Competency Mapping Instructions.
