The digital age has brought with it, an equally digital solution to pretty much anything. From shopping to banking, there is always a way to do it online. So, why not issue digital educational certificates online? If you’re worried about its safety and efficacy, Certif-ID has got you covered.
What is Certif-ID?
Certif-ID is a blockchain-powered platform that allows technical and vocational education and training (TVET) institutes to create a profile, login and manage their credentialing processes end to end. TVET institutes can assign multiple admins to issue and manage their digital certificates. Institutes will be able to directly issue a digital certificate to their student’s email addresses. Thereby, eliminating manual processes like printing and distribution.
Why is Certif-ID powered by blockchain?
You see, digital certificates are just as susceptible to cyber-attacks as your bank account is. But we didn’t want to leave the digital certificates at the mercy of hackers or cyber-criminals. To help technical and vocational education and training institutes secure their certificates even after they have issued it to students, we placed them on blockchain.
When an institute issues a digital certificate through Certif-ID, the certificate is held on blockchain. And, blockchain’s ability to track and trace every transaction makes it hard for anyone to modify the details of a certificate and then go undetected.
A blockchain-powered digital certificate contains a QR code and a verifiable link. When printed, the QR code can be scanned and the certificate can be immediately verified. If it is being shared online, anyone with access to the certificate can click on the link and instantly verify its authenticity. If a digital certificate has been modified, then its verification will fail.
Take advantage of a centralised database to store your certification data
From duplicate data entries to data leakage, technical and vocational education and training institutes lose a lot because of the absence of a centralised database for issuing and storing course completion certificates. This is where the concept of blockchain and digital certificates come into play. As blockchain is a digital ledger, it allows data to be stored in chronological order, and verified across the network. This ensures that the data is stored safely, increasing the integrity of data and efficiency of operations.
What’s more? technical and vocational education and training institutes can utilise Certif-ID’s advanced analytics to interpret data on student preferences and make better decisions.
