How Credly's Program Works

Through the Credentialing Education Program, you will determine the mission, goals, and governance of your program, design a skills-based taxonomy and framework leveraging relevant standards, and create communication and evaluation plans. Upon completion, you will be ready to implement a credentialing program that meets your business objectives and stakeholder needs.

This course is designed for participants who are: 

  • Program managers who are building credentialing programs from the ground up and want to make sure they are not missing any important steps.
  • New team members and admins from Learning & Development, Human Resources, and other teams, joining an established credentialing program who want to get up-to-speed on industry best practices.
  • Experts in credentialing who want to hear from their peers and stay up-to-date on industry best practices 
  • Curious minds who want a strong conceptional understanding of the credentialing space before they start their program and move to onboarding.

The self-paced course will allow participants to work at their own pace from provided course materials and guidebook.

Credentialing Education Program Benefits:

By the end of the course, participants will have the tools they need to launch or improve their credentialing program, and they will earn a Credentialing Education Program badge from Credly.
