CAP certification goes digital

CAP-logoBy Jan paul Miller

In previous articles, we noted the benefits of CAP® certification, including market differentiation and networking. Now INFORMS has announced yet another benefit: the CAP program will be converting to digital certificates beginning Oct. 1.

Digital certificates? Yes. We have contracted with Accredible to host our digital certificate platform. Accredible will help our program issue, manage, track and verify digital certificates and badges.

What does this mean for you? Each certificant will have a unique URL landing page. On this site will reside a facsimile of each certificant’s credential. The site can also hold other certificates issued by INFORMS’s continuing education program.

Is it safe? The site offers bank-level encryption and blockchain verification, meaning it’s impossible for people to fake our certificates or badges.

Can the information be shared? Yes, certificate recipients can share their page on LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter. Your LinkedIn profile will stand out with the CAP logo and a link to your unique URL.

Will the site replace the CAP online registry? Yes, the site will verify the authenticity of a CAP’s credentials with a white-labeled directory on the CAP website. Data is displayed and guaranteed that it is always accurate and up-to-date.

Will certificates have the ability to be printed? Yes, you can download high-resolution PDFs for printing.

Re-certificants will also be able to have automatic renewal contingent on their fulfillment of their recertification requirements.

The move to digital badging is one small step to help our credentialed cohort get the good news out about their achievements.

Jan paul Miller is the certification manager at INFORMS.
