To promote transparency of skills and build a career development platform for the seafarers of the Philippines, a new digital platform, Certif-ID International and TÜV Rheinland Philippines, a global leader in independent inspection services, offers next-gen tools like the Skill Pass to connect Filipino seafarers with jobs globally.
Certif-ID’s Proactive and Innovative Approach to Tackle Unemployment Post Covid-19
Supporting thousands of Filipino seafarers who lost their jobs due to coronavirus, Certif-ID brings to the forefront a global networking platform built on blockchain technology.
The platform offers next-gen tools like the Skill Pass that seafarers can use to showcase their skills, record and share online interviews and store all relevant information in a digital portfolio secured with blockchain technology.
Combining our strengths with TÜV Rheinland who has over 140 years of experience in technical training, we plan to build a digital community for seafarers in the Philippines. To create credible online digital profiles, connect with jobs and seek guidance on upskilling.
Our partnership is set to drastically reduce the time and effort taken by Filipino seafarers to find vacant posts across the maritime and associated industries, and improve recruitment accuracy.
“Skill Pass Can Provide That Edge While Applying For Jobs”
Commenting on this partnership and launch of the initiative, Timothy Miller, the Co-Founder and Managing Director of Certif-ID International, said, “we are unsure of when the industry will return to the pre-COVID levels. The labour market is changing and seafarers will need to differentiate themselves. Skill Pass can provide that edge while applying for jobs. A seafarer can securely share his or her details with recruiters and have them verified instantly, helping them land jobs faster as compared to traditional routes.”
“Our partnership will increase the visibility of skilled seafarers and simplify the talent sourcing process,” said Mr. Tristan Arwen Loveres, Managing Director of TÜV Rheinland Philippines. “Skill Pass can provide an excellent opportunity for Filipino seafarers in the Philippines and across the world to differentiate themselves and land jobs.”
