Certificates can have a long-standing impact on people’s lives. They help in getting a job, allowing recruiters to decide whether a person is a suitable candidate for a job. In spite of how important they are, our systems for certifying learning are outdated, elaborate, time consuming and vulnerable to forgery.
Utilising blockchain technology, organisations can issue learners with verifiable, tamper-proof digital certificates that recognise learning and achievement. As blockchain’s distributed ledger network records every transaction, a recruiter will be able trace a digital certificate back to its origin (issuing institute).
In this way, we can guarantee the legitimacy of the educational certificates. To get started, the Certif-ID platform is ideal for any training and educational institute that wants to digitise their certification process and issue blockchain-based digital certificates.
If you’re still doubtful, in this blog, we’ve decided to put together five reasons for you to consider issuing digital certificates on blockchain.
Stay ahead of the curve
Everyone is jumping on the Blockchain bandwagon. Maharashtra recently became the first to roll out blockchain-powered educational documents state-wide – following the governments of Singapore, Malta and Bahrain. Change is the only constant, and Certif-ID can help you stay ahead of the curve; offering a secure, reliable platform to issue and verify educational credentials.
Save your money
Fake certificates and credential manipulation have been significant problems faced by many. A lot of money has been spent (by both Governments and academic institutions) on the upgradation of technologies to fortify the processes of certificate issuing and validation. Now, we are extending an economical and secure option through the Certif-ID platform, so you don’t have to invest and set up expensive infrastructures.
Stay secure every step of the way
When an institution issues digital certificates using Certif-ID, unalterable links are created between the institute and candidate’s achievements. The certificates issued are stored on blockchain, removing any possibilities of manipulation and fraud. Any hacker looking to decrypt the information in a block has to conduct brute-force-search. This would require computational power which does not exist practically. Secondly, any change made to a block is recorded and can be traced back to its source.
Improve efficiency and transparency
Issuing digital certificates is less time-consuming and more efficient as compared to manual certificate printing and distributing processes. Digital certificates issued via Certif-ID can hold more information including a verification link which recruiters can click and validate the certificate immediately. Thereby, ensuring end-to-end transparency.
Boost graduate’s employability
Digital certificates will act as proof of skills and help in easy verification of credentials in less time. So, when recruiters choose to hire candidates from your institute, they are certain of the skills and certification provided. As they can be verified from anywhere at any time, thanks to blockchain technology.
