A new registry will soon be launched that helps users find out about credentials of all types—including postsecondary certificates, licenses and industry certifications—and how to earn these credentials.
The Credential Registry, produced by the Credential Transparency Initiative and funded by Lumina, is an open, voluntary online tool to which organizations from education institutions to industry certification providers can add information on credentials, including what competencies a credential delivers, how to earn it and whether it is accredited or endorsed. Most excitingly, developers will be encouraged to build off the registry to create new apps that merge the registry information with other data sources, such as employment and earnings data.
The Registry is one outgrowth of Lumina’s Connecting Credentials initiative, which recently released an action plan developed from the initiative’s first year of information gathering and feedback sessions. ACTE is a co-sponsor of the initiative, and our Certification Data Exchange Project has been recognized by Connecting Credentials as an example of the great work going on to expand and improve the credential ecosystem.
