GICT Training & Certification Pte Ltd Launches New Digital
Credentialing Initiative with Credly
Singapore, February 8, 2021 – GICT Training, a pioneer in offering open source technology based (and vendor neutral) certification programs in the areas of AI/Machine Learning, Big Data/Data Science, Cloud Computing and Internet of Things (IoT), today launched a new digital badging program for its certification holders. Individuals who successfully complete the course requirements will earn a GICT Training digital credential.
“By providing a secure, digital representation, GICT certified ICT professionals can more easily manage, share and make use of their credentials within their networks, across digital platforms and on their resumes, “said Dr Anton Ravindran, CEO & Founder of GICT Training & Certification. “For employers, our new digital badges make it easy to identify individuals with the skills they need in the much sought-after areas of Cloud Computing, Data Science, AI/ML and IOT and to verify whether those skills are relevant and up-to-date.
The Hon Prof. Stephen Martin, Chairman of GICT Training said that we are delighted to collaborate with Credly in bringing additional value to our participants and customers particularly given the growing demand for continuing interest in upgrading of skills for ICT professionals and the need for employers to verify the authenticity of such certifications.
GICT Training is working with Credly, the digital credentialing leader, to provide digital badges. Credly collaborates with top global training providers, credential issuers, associations and academic institutions that are similarly focused on the power of verified skills and achievements. Credly transforms knowledge, skills and achievements into digital credentials that empower individuals to connect with learning and career opportunities. “The skills required to navigate the modern workforce are constantly evolving in response to shifts in both technology and employer needs,” said Jonathan Finkelstein, CEO of Credly. “Information and communication technology skills are among the most in-demand across a variety of industries and with its new portfolio of ICT-focused digital credentials, GICT Training is providing credential earners with a host of potential career connections.” Everitas, Australia’s leading digital credentialing consultancy and Credly representative in the Asia Pacific region, provided local support to GICT Training in the development and launch of their digital badging program.
