To issue digital certificates secured by blockchain, Infinity School of Engineering (ISE) partnered with Certif-ID International GbR; deploying a blockchain-powered digital credentialing platform to issue, manage and track student credentials.
Infinity School of Engineering (ISE), Pakistan is an ISO 29990:2010 certified vocational institute run by Ravi-Infinity Group. Focused on bridging the skills gap between technical education and industries, ISE offers training and courses in engineering and management disciplines, equipping students with industry-demand knowledge and skills.
“ISE wanted to automate their manual certificate issuing system. We introduced Certif-ID to issue digital certificates and enhance student record administration,” said Asad Warraich, CEO at International Skills Mark, Pakistan. “As Certif-ID is powered by blockchain, it matches ISE’s expectations of securely streamlining multiple manual processes, including listing courses, managing batches and issuing digital certificates.”
International Skills Mark (ISM) has joined forces with Certif-ID as a Cooperation Partner; introducing reliable digital credentialing services to its partner network of educational institutes in Pakistan.
Digital Certificates Issued on Blockchain: Instant, Shareable and Verifiable.
ISE plays a vital role in promoting economic development by equipping professionals with high-demand skills. They offer a wide range of courses and recognised certification. However, they found manually verifying pre-issued certificates challenging.
“Previously we were manually issuing paper certificates to our graduates. The paper certificate acted as a record of having attended a course, but it did not highlight the level of knowledge or skills achieved. We found it difficult to complete multiple certificate verification requests by employers and third party agencies on a daily basis,” said Abdur Razzaq Gauhar, Executive Director, Infinity School of Engineering.
To reduce the time taken to verify pre-issued certificates and enable remote certificate verification, ISE moved to issuing blockchain-powered digital certificates. Using Certif-ID’s end-to-end digital credentialing system, ISE would be presenting their graduates with a proof of learning, and improving their chances of landing jobs.
Certif-ID is accessible from any device, at any time. Dedicated admins from ISE simply log into the Certif-ID platform, select the batch and issue digital certificates directly to the student’s email address and Certif-ID profile or SkillPass.
“Keeping in line with their vision to provide world-class facilities for learners and bridge the skills gap between education and industry, ISE has fittingly adopted digital certificates,” said Rakshit Manga, Sales Director at Certif-ID International GbR. “Digital certificates issued on blockchain are easy to verify by clicking on the link or scanning the QR code. This allows students to prove their skills and confidently seek employment.”
Verifiable Digital Certificates Remove Employment Barriers
Digital certificates issued on Certif-ID can be verified globally. This has increased the value of the ISE certificate and solved the problems faced by their students to get their certificate verified internationally.
“We believe employment is a source of motivation for learners to achieve their very best. To ensure this, we have placed 80% of our trainees in different industries related to their fields,” said Abdur Razzaq Gauhar. “To honour our graduates and extend our support in finding employment, we chose instantly verifiable digital certificates that emphasises trust and credibility in the minds of potential recruiters.”
As blockchain-powered digital certificates are non-modifiable and secure, students and hiring managers trust the authenticity of ISE’s training. After deploying Certif-ID, ISE has witnessed:
- Increase the efficiency and transparency in the certification process.
- Increase in employment trends and new student enrolments.
- Reduction of time spent on verifying old certificates.
“Certif-ID has met our certification needs and further transformed our student record management system. Not only are we finding it easy to issue and track digital certificates, but recruiters are also finding it easy to verify them remotely,” said Abdur Razzaq Gauhar, Executive Director, Infinity School of Engineering.
“Forward-thinking institutes like ISE require blockchain-powered digital credentialing systems that are easy-to-use and secure,” said Rakshit Manga, Sales Director at Certif-ID International GbR. “We would like to thank our partner ISM for extending their support in digitising ISE’s certification process.”
