Critical Need/Shortage Occupations

Recent legislation, section 167.902 RSMo, requires that the department of economic development shall annually identify occupations in which a critical need or shortage of trained personnel exists in the labor markets in this state and provide such information to the state board of education. Upon receipt of such data, the state board of education shall, in collaboration with the department of economic development, compile the following data and information:

1. Information on how to obtain industry-recognized certificates and credentials

Career centers across the state provide training on a variety of occupations, including those occupations in which a critical need or shortage of trained personnel exists in the labor market of Missouri.  Training in most of these occupations results in industry-recognized credentials and certificates that are valued by employers.  The map found at this link has connections to each career center.  Individuals and schools are encouraged to contact their local career center to determine what occupational training is available and to get information on licensing requirements.
