One of the goals at Credential Engine is to provide the best support for seamlessly publishing data in the Credential Transparency Description Language (CTDL) to the Credential Registry, ultimately supporting global credential transparency. To support this goal, we are pleased to announce our newest resource, the Credential Registry Guidance site. The Credential Registry Guidance site is the go-to source for knowledge, guidance, support, and instructions for the Credential Registry Publishing System tools, including the CTDL, Credential Finder, and more. 

We will be offering a webinar on April 2nd, at 1 PM Eastern, where Credential Engine staff will take a deep dive into the guidance resources offered, go over the variety of information available on the site, and demonstrate how to use this site.  Whether you are new or currently involved in publishing your data to the Credential Registry the guidance site will be your go-to resource. Register here today! This webinar will be recorded and made available after the meeting has taken place. 

The guidance site is a one-stop shop of information to help support your publishing needs. We understand that your publishing needs can happen at any moment, so this guidance site is available to provide insight into the different available tools and the many different types of data you might be publishing. The resources on the site will continually expand and evolve based on user needs and updates to the Credential Registry. Examples of the resources available on the site are: 

You can filter the resources available on this site by the different tools we have available or by the different types of data you can publish to the Credential Registry. We have a Contact Us form that goes to an email that is monitored daily, ensuring that any questions you might have are answered as soon as possible.

This site is not intended to provide information on Credential Engine and the breadth of work we do across the organization. We encourage anyone looking for additional information on Credential Engine, what we do, who we work with, and more to visit us at

When credential data is available in a linked open data format, all that information can be made readily available, open, and consumable. When that information is made readily available, it can empower tools to help job seekers, students, workers, and more fully understand their pathways for a better future. When data can be used to empower people, policymakers can adopt best practices to help their communities have a better-skilled workforce. This stems from making that data readily and openly available, and our goal is to make that process as simple as possible.
