In technology, and specifically WordPress, there are several certificate training courses a person can take to learn the basic knowledge they need to be successful.
But how do we translate that into the workforce? When someone states they are a developer what does that actually mean? Does this person have baseline skills or 10+ years of experience?
Establishing credentials in the WordPress space not only affirms a baseline of knowledge and education, but also gives standardized meaning to the words we use, such as “designer” and “developer.”
In this session I will talk about the importance of credentials in the WordPress workforce, the primary differences between certificates and credentials, how individuals can use credentials to find employment, and how employers can use credentials to ensure their teams are well-prepared to meet the needs of the organization.
