Est: 2018


Through the leadership of the state’s Department of Labor and Economic Opportunity, Michigan is leveraging its work with Credential Engine to support a statewide goal to increase the number of Michiganders with a postsecondary credential from 45 to 60 percent by 2030. To further education and career success initiatives in the state, Michigan will leverage this project to:

  1. Expand Registered Apprenticeship utilization and support
  2.  Enhance the state’s eligible training provider list, Michigan Training Connect; the state’s labor exchange, Michigan Talent Connect; and the Michigan Education and Career Pathfinder career exploration websites
  3.  Map career pathways

Michigan’s technical team has mapped credential data from multiple state sources including the eligible training provider list, secondary schools, postsecondary institutions, and proprietary schools. Utilizing a console designed to publish organizational accounts, contacts, and credentials, this data will be uploaded to the Credential Registry. In addition, several state licensing departments are in various stages of publishing with the assistance of the state’s Credential Engine team.
