A brief article from Securing Industry about Authentic Vision and ProAltitude:
Authentic Vision has teamed up with ProAltitude to prevent the counterfeiting of certificates relied upon by organizations that employ people who work at heights. ProAltitude trains and certifies climbers who perform tasks such as cleaning skyscraper windows or servicing wind turbines. This kind of certification is subject to “significant counterfeiting”, say the partners, as it is mandatory for climbers to perform these jobs. Certificates will now carry a unique tag (randomised QR code and unique hologram), which can be scanned using a smartphone app. Records of scans are held on a web-based portal.
