Credentialism refers to the increasing reliance on formal certificates as an indicator of competence in any job or profession, and the increasing number of certificates one must possess to get permission from The Regulator to pursue their chosen profession. This, in turn, has given rise to a market in which all types of certificates can be purchased online. This saves the purchaser from the need to invest any time or effort in amassing the various certificates needed for professional success, as it takes them only seconds to buy their credentials (or the prerequisites) on the great world wide web where you can buy anything you want.
