Digital BadgesCommunicating your credentials in an ever-expanding online marketplace is a challenge; we know that, so we've partnered with Credly’s Acclaim platform to provide you with a digital badge that verifies the skills you learn in our courses
These online, shareable badges provide employers and peers concrete evidence of what you have learned and the skills required to earn your credential. Each badge's digital image holds verified metadata describing your qualifications and the mastery required to earn them. Plus, Credly’s Acclaim Platform offers labor market insights, based on your new skills. You can search and apply for job opportunities right through the Acclaim Platform.
Use the badges in your email signatures or digital resumes, and to enhance your social media sites such as LinkedIn, Facebook, and Twitter.
