The Directory of Licensed Occupations in Wyoming 2019, compiled by the Research & Planning (R&P) section of the Wyoming Department of Workforce Services, provides detailed information about license requirements and related information for the 97 occupations required to have a license by the state of Wyoming. Forty-five licensing boards oversee the administration and enforcement of these licenses.
Requiring practitioners of some occupations to be licensed results in the assurance that these workers have a minimum level of education and competency, and also generally results in higher wages for workers in those occupations compared to those in many unlicensed occupations.

The purpose of these articles is to illustrate R&P’s ability to track University of Wyoming (UW) and Wyoming community college graduates into the labor market by linking UW and community college data files with administrative databases for Wyoming and 11 partner states. This type of research helps inform students, jobseekers, educators, training providers, and others of employment and wage trends for specific areas of study.

High school students from Star Lane Center in the Natrona County School District (NCSD) were shown how to access occupational projections, wages, and other data provided by the Research & Planning (R&P) section of the Wyoming Department of Workforce Services. The students were tasked with analyzing their chosen career paths and presenting their findings to the Wyoming Workforce Development Council (WWDC).
The project required students to use occupational projections and wage information to analyze their chosen career paths in terms of the education required for the career and the potential for earnings once employed. Students were also asked to assess some of the vocational training opportunities proposed by NCSD’s forthcoming Center for Advanced and Professional Studies program. Students were given access to occupational wages, projections, and other R&P data in order to complete the project. Occupational wages and projections information used by the students can be found at projections.htm.
