BALTIMORE, March 11, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Prometric today announced a partnership with Credly that empowers its test sponsors to award digital credentials to qualified individuals. Through the arrangement, individuals who earn certifications from one of Prometric's test sponsors have the opportunity to receive a digital credential hosted on Credly's Acclaim platform.
"Prometric is excited to extend the range of value-added products we provide to our clients through our relationship with Credly," said Charlie Kernan, president and CEO of Prometric. "Prometric has a long track record of working with industry-leading credentialing organizations in the development and delivery of high-quality assessment services that enable individuals to demonstrate and get recognition for their talents and capabilities. Through Credly, we are offering our clients the best solution to easily provide a secure, validated digital credential to their test takers."
The digital credential enables individuals to share their employment-ready accomplishments online through professional and social networks. Credential holders can use this verified record of their specific skills and knowledge to differentiate themselves from other professionals in their fields. Employers can, in turn, easily identify holders of in-demand credentials who have verified skills and expertise.
"Some of the world's most recognizable brands trust Prometric to execute on their high-stakes testing needs," said Jonathan Finkelstein, CEO of Credly. "As they do, those brands need to empower their employees, members, and students with portable, verified evidence of the knowledge or skills they've demonstrated. By doing so, Credly digital credentials help convert the tremendous latent value of a completed high-stakes assessment into tangible opportunity for the credential earner."
