Digital Verifiable Credentials

The future of training and credentialling starts here

What is a digital verifiable credential?

Digital Verifiable Credentials (VCs) are secure, cloud-based credentials that are far beyond a traditional certificate, digital badge, or PDF. They’re impossible to forge, falsify or alter.

Verifiable Credentials (VCs) are tamper-proof and independently verifiable credentials that use globally recognized W3C standards and rely on blockchain technology. They are trusted, real-time digital credentials that live in a digital wallet and can be viewed, managed and shared from anywhere.

How does it work?

VCs are issued by a training provider, and independently validated by a third-party verifier via secure blockchain technology. When a VC is issued to the credential holder, it is dated and time stamped. If necessary, the issuer can instantly revoke the credential at any time.

We Know Training is currently the only issuer of verifiable credentials-enabled training through its proprietary LMS. WKT works in partnership with Credivera for credential verification. Credivera is the world’s leading credential verifier via the Credivera Exchange, which optimizes personal privacy and trust with up-to-date verified credentials secured in a digital wallet.

As easy as 1, 2, 3!
