Who We Are

Credential Engine is a non-profit whose mission is to map the credential landscape with clear and consistent information, fueling the creation of resources that empower people to find the pathways that are best for them.

What We Do

Credential Engine provides a suite of web-based services that creates for the first time a centralized Credential Registry to house rich information about all credentials, a common description language to enable credential description, comparison, and navigation, and a Credential Finder tool to search information housed in the Registry. We also encourage and support the creation of third-party tools and platforms that allow people access to this transparent information about credentials so they can make informed decisions. 

Credential Engine’s open-source technologies are increasingly recognized to be essential to ensure data interoperability across the web, the value of which is improved transparency, clearer pathways, enhanced navigation and guidance, clearer accountability metrics, and a more efficient marketplace. Credential Engine’s work spans:

  • Development, provision, and advancement of essential technologies, 
  • Provision of general and customized technical support for credential issuers, data consumers, administrators, policymakers, and others,  
  • Policy advocacy and education at the federal, state, institution, and employer level about the value and role of credential transparency,
  • Collaboration with numerous parallel, related, and complementary initiatives to improve the education, training, employment, learner data ecosystem.

Credential Engine works with a growing number of states and regions to support their efforts to make essential data about credentials and competencies public, transparent, and linked in order to better serve learners, workers, employers, and others. We partner with national organizations to support the development and implementation of policies that will make credential transparency enduring in states. We also work with a number of national postsecondary education associations that have  endorsed credential transparency and our work. And we are exploring opportunities to expand our partnerships internationally.

Why We Do It

Through an increasing array of credentials – such as degrees, licenses, badges and apprenticeships – job seekers, students, and workers have more options than ever to help them get ahead. Yet, there has never been an efficient way to collect, search, and compare credentials in a way that can be both universally understood and maintained in a manner that keeps up with the speed of change in the 21st century. With over 1,000,000 confirmed credentials in the U.S. alone, and likely millions worldwide, this lack of information in the marketplace contributes to confusion and uninformed decision making.

Credential Engine provides a suite of publishing tools for converting information into valuable data, a Credential Registry, and services for states, systems, web applications and other tools to utilize the Registry data.
