NACE International and the NACE International Institute Launch Digital Credentialing to Member and Certification Holder Community
MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., May 5, 2020 (Newswire.com) - Accredible today announced it has partnered with The National Association of Corrosion Engineers (NACE) and the NACE International Institute to bring digital membership badges and digital certification credentials and certificates to NACE members and NACE Institute certification holders. Accredible is excited to partner with NACE and the NACE Institute as they move away from traditional methods of membership and certification credentials to a modern digital format.
Those who earn a certification from the NACE Institute will now receive a digital certificate and credential that is hosted on the Accredible platform, which allows them to showcase their achievements online and stand out from others in the corrosion industry. They also allow for instant online verification. NACE Institute certifications are globally recognized as a standardized and skills-focused program for the industry. Employers can now easily verify these certifications and credentials as part of their due diligence process.
“As an organization, we are proud to offer our certification holders this newest benefit for their credentialing. Just as you can perform banking transactions on your phone, so should you be able to verify your professional credentials,” says Keenan Loubser, NACE Institute Chief Operating Officer. “And as the value of the certifications have increased, so too has the attempts at producing fraudulent certification instruments. Digital badging will protect the value of a certification for the person who truly earned it.”
