Not immediately. We're preparing to issue certificates to students who complete ODEM Platform academic programs. In the future, we hope universities and organizations such as the European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System recognize our certificates.
We're also working with companies to establish standards for the earning of credits on the Platform. For instance, we expect that companies will use the Platform as a tool for training existing and prospective employees in specific topic areas.
For example, if an automobile maker is having difficulty finding qualified engineers to design driverless cars then our ODEM educators will work with the company to develop program curriculum to certify the engineers. Once the automaker approves the program it will be offered on the Marketplace, students will take the course, and upon successful completion, will earn a certificate and the possibility of employment with the manufacturer.
