Credential Finder is a prototype search engine tool developed by Credential Engine. The tool was developed to make the information on the Credential Registry accessible to all and to show what kind of information can be pulled from the Credential Registry. The audience for Credential Finder includes individual job seekers, credential providers, government agencies, application developers, competency skill creators, employers, and quality assurance agencies. Credential Engine grew out of the Credential Transparency Initiative (CTI), which began in 2013 to develop a centralized registry of credential information, a common credentialing language, and a credential search engine. Credential Engine was founded in December 2016 to operationalize the CTI initiatives. This work has been supported by the Lumina Foundation and JPMorgan Chase & Co.
