Oregon Registry Credential Program

Credentials: A credential is a “document certifying that an individual has met a defined set of requirements set forth by the grantor of the credential, usually related to skills and knowledge and may include demonstrations of competence.” -- National Child Care Information Center

The purpose of the state-approved Oregon Registry credentials is to recognize a professional’s knowledge, skills and achievements in order to improve the quality of services and thereby increase positive outcomes for children and families.
