"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."
- Eleni Papadakis, Executive Director, Washington State Workforce Training and Education Coordinating Board

Registry Participants

Registry participants play an essential role in this initiative by making information about their credentials and quality assurance processes available to the Credential Registry. Credential Issuer Participants include:
  • Universities, four-year colleges, and community colleges that award a variety of credentials, from certificates and associate degrees to baccalaureate and graduate level degrees.
  • Organizations and companies that award industry certifications, certificates, and other credentials such as licenses and badges.
Quality Assurance Participants are organizations that accredit, recognize, approve, or endorse credentialing organizations. To learn more about becoming a registry participant, register for an informational webinar. Questions can be sent to info@credentialengine.org.
