iCEV is committed to providing lifelong learners the tools necessary to achieve academic and professional goals. In an ever-changing marketplace, it is essential to communicate skills and credentials effectively. We have partnered with Credly to offer a modernized version of credentials through digital badging.
Digital badges signify the earner has completed a formally approved set of standards or competencies. Badges can be earned by gaining specific knowledge or skills or for completing specific tasks. Collecting badges is a fun way to share learning experiences with others and to highlight the earner’s commitment to knowledge expansion in a specific area.
It can be challenging to find the right employee for your business or organization. It is not an easy task to find an applicant who has the experiences, credentials and qualities you are looking for. Industry certifications act as a signal to employers and are a way to verify the applicant has the knowledge and skills needed for the position.
Industry certifications are a portable, easily accessible option for those who are looking to upskill or reskill. Whether a student is preparing to enter the workforce or a current professional is strengthening their résumé, industry certifications will play a vital role in revitalizing the American workforce.
The use of industry certifications as an upskilling tool has been growing in popularity in recent years. Industry certifications allow the earner to verify their knowledge and skills.
