- The Wisconsin Health Science Occupations Skill Standards outlines what curriculum and experiences would be included in a Health Science Occupations program to produce a student proficient for an entry level training program or career. These standards form the basis of the Wisconsin Health Science Occupations Skill Standards Certificate.
- National Consortium of Health Science Education (NCHSE) Standards are divided into several sub-sections. The National Healthcare Foundation Standards and Accountability Criteria answers the question, "What does a worker need to know and be able to do to contribute to the delivery of safe and effective health care?" They represent core expectations most workers need in order to succeed in a health care career; a foundation for continuous formal preparation on the job.
- There are five Pathway Standards, divided by career clusters.
- The Therapeutic Services Pathway Standards apply to occupations involved in changing the health status of a patient over time.
- The Diagnostic Pathway Services Standards apply to occupations involved in creating a picture of a patient's health status at a single point in time.
- The Health Informatics Pathways Standards apply to occupations or functions that document patient care.
- The Support Services Pathway Standards apply to occupations involving direct or indirect patient care that create a therapeutic environment for providing that care.
- The Biotechnology Research and Development (R&D) Pathway Standards apply to occupations involved in biotechnology research and development that applies to human health.

- Wisconsin Educator Standards - Teachers are the guidelines for success of all teachers in all disciplines in the State of Wisconsin.
