Credential Transparency Initiative Partners

The Credential Engine project’s technical team (TT) will provide up to 100 pilot credentialing pilot-site partners sites with a set of services beneficial to each organization’s short- and long-term technology planning.  Through each phase of the Credential Engine project, the TT will provide assistance, including non-technical and technical materials for administrators and technical staff.

Partners will provide a broad range of credentialing information including:

Throughout the process, partners will provide information and access needed to co-engineer the Credential Registry, Credential Directory and other potential apps.   Partners will also learn about the benefits of Linked Data, and provide iterative feedback on the process and outcomes.  The partner services and participation activities occur between the TT and identified pilot partner site program and technical contacts:

Benefits of Participation

Credential Engine staff will provide partners a suite of services beneficial to each partner’s short- and long-term technology planning. These include technical and non-technical materials, information about Web 3.0 technologies, especially “linked data,” and a “roadmap” of best practices to help make the most of the registry and app after the project ends. In return, partners will provide the information and access needed to co-engineer the registry and app, and will offer feedback on the process and outcomes.

The organizations we seek as pilot sites are ones that award education certificates and degrees (associates, bachelors, advanced), industry certificates and certifications, occupational licenses, and workforce micro-credentials (e.g., "badges"). We are especially interested in credentials that qualify their holders for jobs in manufacturing, information technology and healthcare, and in the case of licenses, healthcare alone.
