As part of continuing efforts to ensure data quality within the Registry, Credential Engine’s Certification and Licensure Advisory Group (CLAG) has identified areas where publishers may benefit from receiving additional guidance. A subset of the CLAG—the Certification Working Group—spent time reviewing data about certifications published to the Registry to develop recommendations for how to improve the quality and depth of data about certifications in the Registry. The purpose of this document is to specifically provide publishers additional guidance on how to distinguish between certifications and certificates, and how to best represent certifications on the Registry.
