Kumu A'o, The Hawaii Consumer Report Card System (CRCS)
Education is a product like any other. In exchange for students' money and effort, training institutions should provide programs that increase students' skills and knowledge. Theoretically, these new skills and knowledge will improve chances of finding work and succeeding at lifelong learning.
In the past, Hawaii consumers had little concrete data to rely upon when making educational decisions. That is why the Kumu A'o System was developed. Kumu A'o, the Hawaii Consumer Report Card System, provides information to help consumers make informed decisions about training providers and training programs.
Kumu A'o, the CRCS, is the State of Hawaii's WIA Eligible Training Provider List.The data in Kumu A'o can be extremely valuable if used wisely. Users, along with their counselors, should review the information to determine which program and training provider might benefit them the most.
