We are happy to announce the launch of our digital badging program, powered by Credly! The benefits of using a digital badge allow you to share your abilities online in a way that is simple, trusted, and can be easily verified in real time. Badges provide employers and peers with concrete evidence of what you had to do and the knowledge required to earn the credential. It will also show when you earned the credential and when it will expire. Digital badges can be shared in an email signature, digital resume, or on social media platforms like Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter.
