As non-degree credentials (NDC) become increasingly common offerings in the education and training marketplace, the importance of developing systems to ensure their quality is a policy imperative. To create a more systematic approach to NDC quality, this paper addresses two overarching questions: Who are the organizational actors in the NDC marketplace? How do they influence quality? This paper examines potential influences on NDC quality in the credential marketplace and provides a roadmap of the organizations and initiatives currently involved in overseeing NDC quality. It provides a discussion of implications for building on this existing infrastructure to create a more robust and coherent system to promote quality in the NDC marketplace.
