In this post on the 29th January 2019 we announced our timeline for closing our in house Digital Badge Platform - The Open Badge Academy.
For the first time, an internationally recognised City & Guilds Certificate in 18th Edition Wiring Regulations is accompanied by a verifiable Digital Credential.
Ask any practicing electrician, surveyor or consultant working in trades with an understanding of electrical wiring and they are likely to mention the IET 18th Edition Wiring Regulations (BS 7671) - the definitive standards for the electrical industry for the safe use and operation of electrical equipment and systems in the UK and recognised by the British Standards Institute as a British Standard.
Client Support Executive Joe Weiler advocates simplicity, for everything from travelling the world to the support he offers to our customers.
“I draw from simplicity during my working day by creating To Do lists with all my tasks - long term and short term - so I can see how my week will pan our (or at least is planned to pan out)! ” Weiler says. "I utilise simplicity outside of work by only taking hand luggage when travelling abroad. Having that restriction of only bringing both what I really need and what I can carry makes moving around any country a lot easier. It's always fun skipping the queues at hold luggage carousels!"
Joe's ongoing projects include; helping City & Guilds Group Customers get set up with Assured ( The City & Guilds training accreditation service) and staying up to date with the latest developments on the Credly platform , this means understanding how new features change the experience customers and the individuals who receive credentials have.
We sat down with Joe at the Digitalme Office in Leeds, to learn more about his history of working with badges then credentials and his approach to supporting customers with their programmes.

Congratulations on having earned a digital badge! Maybe you’re wondering what this means and how to make the most out of your badge.
We’re all lifelong learners, so you have probably received more than a certificate or two before that reminds you of an achievement.
How often do you use your certificate to talk about your skills? Do you have it up on the wall of your office, or do you only glance at occasionally?
