Overview

New Jersey’s state scale-up project is focused on publishing information about programs and credentials that are offered by private career schools and correspondence schools that wish to provide training within New Jersey, with larger statewide goals aimed at streamlining the private career school application process and improving the ability to collect and report program outcomes for compliance and informed decision making. The New Jersey Department of Labor and Workforce Development also maintains New Jersey’s Eligible Training Provider List (ETPL) and Consumer Report Card (CRC), but neither is easily accessible for those who want to find and use the available data. To that end, the Department is working to replace the ETPL and CRC with an interactive, mobile-responsive website that will offer improved functionality and expand the collection of open data about training programs–using that data to build a “smart disclosure” tool. This data will also be published to the Credential Registry.
