Merit and Credential Engine Partner to Expand Nationwide Credential Ecosystem

 Integrating verified identity and credential registry platforms facilitates a transparent nationwide credential marketplace

MILLBRAE, Calif. – Today, Merit and Credential Engine announced a strategic partnership that gives states the digital credentialing tools to build a system for standards-based reciprocity between states. These tools also help states understand the different ways in which data is adopted, distributed, and communicated across partner states, in order to inform workforce and education policy. This partnership between Merit and Credential Engine will help address issues for both public sector organizations and private citizens and ensure that transparent, verified, digital credentials lead to jobs.

Merit, a verified identity platform, works with over 1,000 public and private sector organizations, including state government agencies, to standardize and centralize digital records for professional licenses and qualifications. Now, Merit’s partners have the opportunity to seamlessly incorporate Credential Engine’s Credential Transparency Description Language (CTDL) that captures, links, updates, and shares up-to-date information about credentials for easy organization and searchability.
