    Credly, the leader in digital credentials, announced today the launch of NorQuest College’s new digital credential program. Located in Canada, NorQuest College is Edmonton’s community college and serves over 19,000 students annually throughout the province with full-time, part-time, online, and face-to-face learning options. The institution’s post-secondary diploma and certificate programs offer career paths in health, community studies, business, environment, technology, hospitality, and firefighting.
     
    “NorQuest prepares students for their future with the skills and knowledge needed to succeed,” said Brad Arkison, Director of Continuing Education and Partner Solutions at NorQuest College. “Our students leave NorQuest with many newly developed skills, so having a tool like Credly’s digital badges that demonstrate this expertise to employers is extremely valuable.”
     
    NorQuest College joins the roster of academic institutions on Credly’s Acclaim platform that seek input from local employers to create learning experiences that address skill gaps in the workforce. By providing its students with digital credentials through Credly, NorQuest College offers a verified, shareable method of recognition that ensures students maximize their investment in education and employers understand what students are capable of contributing upon completing courses.
     
    “A collaborative relationship between learning institutions and employers is essential to ensure that the members of the workforce are skilled-up and ready to contribute in the jobs that keep their communities strong,” said Jonathan Finkelstein, CEO of Credly. “With its new digital credential program, NorQuest College sends a clear signal of leadership in upskilling to students and employers alike.”
