The credential marketplace can be overwhelming and hard to navigate. Michiganders deserve credential transparency providing access to clear and accurate information in order to find the educational pathway that best fits their career goals.
Michigan credential data will be leveraged to:
Expand Registered Apprenticeship utilization and resource support,
Enhance and unify Michigan Training Connect (eligible training provider list), Michigan Education and Career Pathfinder (career exploration website), and Pure Michigan Talent Connect (state labor exchange), and
Map high-demand Career Pathways.
Michigan’s goal is to provide support to state government departments, secondary schools, postsecondary institutions, apprenticeship program sponsors, and other credential owners to publish credentials to the Credential Registry. Credential transparency is in direct alignment with the Governor’s statewide goal to increase the number of Michiganders with a postsecondary credential (a high-quality industry certificate, associate degree or higher) to 60 percent by 2030.
