Thirty-nine credits are granted toward the degree based upon completion of a Wisconsin Journey Certificate that includes 400 hours or more of instruction. With a college advisor, the journeyworker identifies the knowledge and skills required to achieve specific career goals.

At a time when the workplace is continuously changing with advancing technology and flexible organizational practices, new and nontraditional skills are required of the successful worker.
