Create OPR Profile Resources

The Ohio Professional Registry (OPR) is Ohio’s workforce registry information system that promotes individual professional growth and development. The OPR captures data about early childhood, child serving agencies and school age professionals in a variety of roles and settings and serves as a comprehensive data repository for employment, professional development, education and credentials.

The OPR empowers individuals to take charge of their professional growth and development based on Ohio’s Career Pathway Model. The OPR offers information about various professional development requirements, links individuals to professional development opportunities, tracks and documents completion of formal education, credentials, and industry specific professional development for their specific role including recognition of professional achievements of the early childhood, child serving agencies and school age workforce.

A professional’s individual data is never identified or reported. Data collected includes demographics, employment, education, qualifications, and participation in professional learning and informs state funders, policy makers, and partners for initiatives such as compensation and retention, quality assurance, workforce supports.

To get started, create a profile, upload your supporting documents and be recognized for your experience, education, credentials and professional development in the Ohio Professional Registry.
