CAPE - Postsecondary

The Florida Career and Professional Education Act was created to provide a statewide planning partnership between business and education communities, to expand and retain high-value industry, and sustain a vibrant state economy. While originally focused on industry certification attainment by secondary students, the 2013 Legislature expanded the CAPE Act to include industry certification attainment by postsecondary students.

  • The 2023-24 CAPE Industry Certification Funding List is a list of certifications and certificates with secondary and postsecondary funding designations.
    • In the past the department has maintained two separate lists for secondary and postsecondary.
    • Changes to section (s.) 1008.44, Florida Statutes (F.S.) from House Bill 1507 require a single list and a single rule for CAPE beginning in the 2022-23 school year.

  • To be considered for the CAPE list the certification must be on the Master Credentials List (MCL). The MCL has been approved for 2023-24 by the Credential Review Committee (CRC) and can be found on the CareerSource Florida website.
    • The Credentials Review Committee is continuing work on the framework of quality to be used for the Master Credentials list process.
      • Once this work is complete, all current certifications will be reviewed using the new framework of quality and a new request submission process will be available.
