CeCredential Overview

As the market leader for the production of paper diplomas and certificates, nothing replaces the beauty and sense of accomplishment that these documents bring to the recipient.

However, industry has recognized the need to secure these important credentials such that they can be delivered in a timely manner. These digital credentials are now commonly referred to as eDiplomas.

An eDiploma allows for quick distribution of a credential with a certain level of associated security. There are many different types of eDiplomas, but none have the unique features of the CeDiploma or CeCertificate, which are the cornerstones for acceptability.

CeDiploma vs eDiploma

Exact Duplicate

A CeCredential is always an exact duplicate of the paper credential, leading to greater confidence in the marketplace.

This is not always the case with an eDiploma.

Unique Identifier

A CeCredential always has a unique serial number that can be shared and validated without providing the actual digital credential.

This is not always the case with an eDiploma.
