Pathways Paths and Core Competencies

Pathways Recognition

Pathways Recognition

Member Recognition

Except for DTM, old recognition will discontinue. Anything you have earned you will keep BUT there is no equivalency between current and future recognition. You will not be able to “transfer credit”, e.g. a CC is not equivalent to a level 2.

New recognition comes after each of the five levels of a pathway: “My Learning Path” Level 1, “My Learning Path” Level 2, “My Learning Path” Level 3, “My Learning Path” Level 4, “My Learning Path” Proficient (level 5).

Club Recognition

Clubs can earn recognition in the Distinguished Club Program for members progressing in the Pathways curriculum.  The six goals clubs can earn for member achievement in Pathways are:

  • 4 members earn Level 1
  • 2 members earn Level 2
  • 2 more members earn Level 2
  • 2 member earns Level 3
  • 1 member earns Level 4, Level 5, or a DTM
  • 1 member earns Level 4, Level 5, or a DTM
