SOMERVILLE, NJ (May 6, 2021) – Specified Technologies, Inc. (STI), a pioneer in the firestop industry, is proud to announce the deployment of their digital badges for completion of their online and distance learning educational courses.

STI has partnered with Credly, a digital badge platform that works with credible organizations to provide digital credentials to individuals worldwide, so they can manage, share and verify their competencies digitally. The technology Credly uses is based on the Open Badge Standards maintained by IMS Global.

“Representing your skills as a badge gives you a way to share your abilities online in a way that is simple, trusted and can be easily verified in real time” explains John Zalepka, Training and Development Manager for Specified Technologies Inc. “Badges provide employers and peers concrete evidence of what you had to do to earn your credential and what you’re now capable of. Credly also offers labor market insights, based on your skills. You can search and easily apply for job opportunities right through the Credly platform.”

Digital badges are also used in email signatures, digital resumes, and on social media sites such as LinkedIn, Facebook, and Twitter. Each digital badge contains verified metadata that describes your qualifications and the process required to earn them.
