Student Recruitment Agencies Accreditor to Use Blockchain for Validating Credentials
To develop and maintain a global standard for professionalism and agency excellence, the ICEF Agency Status recognition program was introduced in 2010. An agency’s QR code may be shared with students, parents, and other institutions, enabling them to instantly verify the agency’s accreditation using the service’s blockchain technology.
On business cards, brochures, and websites, agencies may include their unique ID number, as well as a link to the IAS badge. In order to verify the legitimacy of an organization, it is recommended that students scan or click on the badge.
Individuals will be able to “validate an ICEF Agency Status in just seconds, anywhere,” an ICEF representative stated. The OpenCerts technology created by the Singapore government is used in the ICEF ID program. For Ross Holmes, executive director of ICEF: “A secure digital certification that permits them to demonstrate their accreditation to potential suitor organizations, and also parents and students,” it’s excellent that we can help our thousands of authorized agencies by offering a safe digital certification.
“Our industry might really benefit from blockchain technology. Taking the initial step is something we’re quite pleased of.” In order to be accredited by ICEF, organizations must undertake a thorough screening procedure, which includes references and interviews, as well as a review of company practices. It is estimated that more than 5,000 IAS certifications have been granted to student recruitment professionals all around the globe.
