We encourage more businesses, labor organizations, education institutions, and training agencies to join this cause and work together to contribute to the development of the Credential Registry.
It is more confusing than ever to understand what training, education, and experience is valued in today’s dynamic and changing economy. But with leaders in labor and business coming together through Credential Engine, job seekers and employers can access tools to decipher which credentials lead to careers – a strategy that can benefit all working families.
Credential Engine is creating a lot greater clarity about credentials and providing empowering information to the public about career and education opportunities.
People deserve a system that will help them get higher up the ladder of opportunity, with credentials that have value and lead directly to jobs or further education. The registry offers an exciting solution to this goal.
Ivy Tech Community College students often move back and forth along their career and education pathways, earning credentials along the way. Credential Engine illustrates those educational connections between industry, certifications, apprenticeships, and degrees for the first time.
