In 2014, Excelsior College president, John Ebersole, recognized the need to expand workforce development services at the College. Based on over 40 years of experience granting credit for prior learning, the Center for Assessment of Post-Traditional Instruction, Training, and Learning (CAPITAL) was born. CAPITAL helps employers build a more educated workforce by ensuring that employees earn college credit for the training they receive on the job.
