“Bow Valley College is passionate about fulfilling our ambition of embracing innovative technology solutions which will be of benefit to our learners,” says Charles Pankratz, director of enrolment services & registrar at Bow Valley College. “In our modern society, it is essential that we empower our students with trusted digital capabilities to assist them in their journey into employment or further study. Verified digital credentials and the vast opportunities afforded to us through the ARUCC National Network forms an important part of our long-term vision and strategic approach.”
“Today we welcome Bow Valley College to ARUCC's MyCreds™ | MesCertif™ family and are thrilled to support their learner community by making digital credentials easily accessible,” says Joanne Duklas, executive lead, ARUCC. “MyCreds™ | MesCertif™ provides learners with a comprehensive learner wallet and a national, secure digital environment for sharing official, digitized post-secondary badges, micro-credentials, documents, transcripts, and diplomas - anytime, anywhere.
