Crew certificates

Until now, every training provider offering services to the same market, has been keeping private records about its students. Students showing up with proof of previous training, with identification that "looks like them" but is unverifiable, without a clear history of what's happened in the past, it all raises questions that schools try to avoid. After all, they'll be making a statement about this individual when he or she completed the training, based on that trust in the historical record. What if there was a central repository that the student could refer to, with verifiable and up-to-date records? What if that were available worldwide and someone applying for a job could refer to this record?

Big News: We launched the Certificate Registry in the fall of 2012. Since then, 6827 registrations have been completed by 27 maritime schools on 4 continents, which is a great success. At the Monaco Yacht Show 2013, we announced that the registry is now an open and free* repository for maritime schools to publish and archive certificates into.

*: It was always our strategy to make the registry open and free, but we needed to achieve the critical mass to get there.
