It is often necessary to identify the organization that offers an educational occupational credential, or conversely to find the credentials offered by an organization. This will normally be the awarding body of the credential, and is not necessarily the same as the organization offering learning opportunities or assessments that lead to the credential.

Discussion: EOCred: name search for credentialing organization thread from Mar 2018.


As we do when describing the Costs of an educational occupational credential, we use the Offer type; this has a property offeredBy that is the organization or person making the offer. The inverse property, makesOffer, allows the listing of credentials offered by an educational / occupational credentialing organization.
