However, with the digitalisation of the different sectors of the events industry, these certification programs are not the only way to demonstrate work and meet planning proficiency.
The term “digital credentials” has become a buzzword in all areas of business. A digital certificate is most commonly used in the event and meeting business to indicate that someone has completed a professional development course and demonstrated mastery of a set of related skills and information.
In a digital era where online or remote employment is common, digital credentials are the most essential way to improve new learning skills.
Many Digital Credential issuing programmes assess candidates’ development and proficiency in the skill exhibited, which is recognised with a Digital Credential such as Digital certificates and digital badges.
Unlike physical certifications, which require storage and maintenance and can be difficult to share or display, digital credentials, which are a digital version of a paper-based credential, are considerably easier to use, examine, and share.
The recipient can save these digital credentials in a digital wallet or make them public to display their competencies once they have been issued, claimed, and approved. Digital credentials can be shared via email, social media, and social networking sites. For job advancement, the digital credential’s URL or link can be included in resumes or portfolios.
ID tagging with SSL technology is used to create the digital credential, which is protected with bank-level security. They’re also backed up by meta-data, which makes them simple to validate and trace. To prevent unauthorized access, digital credentials can be encrypted using a digital key or passcode. It is also safe against cyber-attacks and data manipulation.
