Ved Mani Tiwari, COO (Officiating CEO) of NSDC, said, "In line with our new brand identity and focus, we are committed to achieving the country's skill development mission.

As a part of this initiative, NSDC and Certif-ID will identify skilled candidates and support them to upskill, learn languages, and develop cultural awareness of international markets. A candidates journey starts with internationally recognized digital credentials being issued to successful candidates by NSDC. Credentials are anchored on blockchain and stored in a digital wallet called 'SkillPass'.

With its International Skilling Centers, NSDC certifies top talent across the country and provides candidates with the opportunity to build a digital skills profile and continue to   upskill and apply for skill matched international job opportunities.
