"As a performance accountability agency, we always aim to compare apples to apples and evaluate the effectiveness of the entire system. The registry can help advance our efforts by developing a common taxonomy about credentials. We want people to be able to shorten the time to wage and opportunity progress, and to make informed choices about how to invest their resources to accomplish their career goals. The registry will become enormously useful to both student-jobseekers and talent-seeking employers."
