·3 min read

Certificates feature built-in blockchain technology, making it easy for employers to verify credentials.

CALGARY, AB, Oct. 27, 2021 /CNW/ - ReTrain Canada is pleased to announce the inclusion of NFTs (Non-Fungible Tokens) as a component of its digital certification. This makes ReTrain Canada the first training institute in the world to offer and fully incorporate NFTs as a proof of course completion. We are pleased to announce that, beginning in November 2021, graduates of the following ReTrain Canada certification or micro-certification courses will receive a unique NFT certificate:

  • Emerging Technologies in Digital Currency

  • NFTs for Everyday People

  • Cybersecurity Basics for the Non-IT Professional

  • Applied Cyber Penetration Testing

  • Cyber Foundations & Quality Assurance Testing

NFTs made their debut in the worlds of Art and Music, and made headlines through the high-profile sale of digital art. This new use exemplifies the NFT's utility in the corporate world. Certifications are the perfect example of a credential that benefits from an NFT's proof of ownership.

"Since these digital documents are available on the blockchain, they can't be duplicated or fabricated. As hiring organizations look for easier and more economical ways to verify credentials, the use of NFTs ensures the information can't be tampered with and is easily accessible to the public," said CEO of ReTrain Canada, Jeannine Adams. "As we are now in a global economy with a global workforce; we know that the market is looking for modern ways of verifying credentials and this not only does that, but it also engages everyday Canadians with this type of technology. We know that these NFT certifications positively set the Canadian workforce apart. ReTrain Canada is committed to driving Canadians towards these and many other new technologies."

This delivers on ReTrain Canada's mandate to facilitate humanity meeting technology. According to Adams: "NFTs represent an exciting future of innovative technologies, and each of our students will get to keep their own unique piece from their time spent learning with us."
