Texas Skill Standards Repository

Welcome to the Texas Skill Standards Repository.

All Texas Skill Standards Board (TSSB) recognized skill standards are stored here. TSSB recognition means that the standards have met criteria for procedural and content validity and reliability according to the TSSB’s Guidelines for the Development, Recognition, and Usage of Skill Standards and Developing Skill Standards: A User's Guide.

 

All skill standards are submitted by industry groups and required to be reviewed, and updated as necessary when there are substantive changes to the work-oriented information.

Skill standards that are no longer recognized by the TSSB are archived.

The skill standards are listed in alphabetical order by title, followed by information about the standards:
