Event description


Today’s Credentialing Marketplace Has Become Unwieldy and Complex...

The credentialing marketplace is growing. By 2020, 65 percent of all jobs in the economy will require postsecondary education and training beyond high school, and the number of postsecondary programs has already more than quintupled since 1985. In today’s information age, accessing and understanding data about credentials is critical to success—educators need it to determine best practices and build new programs, employers need it to understand where to find qualified hires, and students and workers need it to decide what pathways to choose. To date, there has never been an efficient system to collect, connect, search, and compare up-to-date information about credentials in a common language that can be universally understood and easily accessed. With an estimated 250,000 credentials in the U.S. alone, this lack of information contributes to confusion and uninformed decision making.

…Until Now
