Counting U.S. Postsecondary and Secondary Credentials - Credential Engine

Unfortunately, we still know very little about the full range of credentials offered across the country and their current—and potential—impact on economic mobility. Thankfully, Credential Engine has now developed the most robust count of secondary and postsecondary credentials to date, and among the more than 730,000 found there are an estimated 475,000 non-degree credentials that range from digital badges to fully accredited certificate programs. Every bit of education and training counts. We know from research that Americans with non-degree credentials have improved odds of economic mobility, financial stability, and higher satisfaction with their education and career pathways over those with only a high school diploma.
