Relational Map coming soon. Learn more about the work we’re doing with AI and view our example prototypes here.

Overview

Leaders in Alabama are developing a statewide Credential Registry as a state-specific subset of the global Credential Registry. They are using the Credential Transparency Description Language (CTDL) available from Credential Engine as the foundation for important skill development work to advance the success of all Alabamians. Strengthening this labor market information, state infrastructure streamlines data collection and ensures that accurate, up-to-date, and uniform education and workforce data support multiple stakeholders and purposes.

This data will be used in Learning and Employment Record (LER) initiatives, as Alabama and Credential Engine are collaborating in the National Governors Association project, Skills-Driven States Community of Practice.

Partners

Governor’s Office of Education and Workforce Transformation (Lead), Alabama Commission on Higher Education, Alabama Department of Labor, Alabama Department of Commerce, Alabama Committee on Credentialing and Career Pathways
