The main mission is to provide the woodworker with portable, personal, permanent records of their achievements as a professional -- a "passport" to career success.
WCA is a national credential program. Woodworkers showcase their in-plant woodworking skills and earn credentials that are recognized throughout North America.
Woodworkers can enroll to receive a "Woodwork Passport" in which they gather "tool stamps" validating their tool operation level proficiencies throughout their career.
Woodworkers demonstrate their accumulated skills against a consistent industry standard. Employers have a mechanism to evaluate employees' skills.
The Woodwork Passport advances the knowledge, skill and professionalism of the workforce needed to sustain and grow the woodwork industry.
