Benefits for Event Participants

Offering these valuable credentials to attendees of your conferences may help increase attendance and the credibility of your educational events.  Engineering professionals often seek out conferences that have certificates with PDH (Professional Development Hour) credits so they can add new skills to their resume and maintain their professional license(s).  Young professionals often seek events that issue digital badges that can be shared on their social media profiles such as LinkedIn.

How it Works

  1. Event organizers complete a short online application form 5-10 days prior to the event.
  2. IEEE Credentialing Team reviews and approves the learning event to receive certificates.
  3. Event is held.
  4. After the event, upload the attendee roster to our online platform.
