Candidates who have passed PECB Exams can now obtain Digital Badges to share on social media profiles.
Digital badges are a powerful online representation that lets you showcase your professional knowledge and skills obtained through your professional development. Digital badges are indicators of your accomplishments, which help you to get the recognition you have earned. They inspire new pathways to learn and lead to new professional opportunities.
PECB has partnered with Credly to offer you the chance of earning a digital badge. The badges can be shared online safely and easily. Make sure that once you get the notification that you have been awarded a digital badge, claim your badge and share it on social media channels or embed it on your CV or business card.
How do PECB digital badges work?
PECB Digital badges contain shareable information about the organization that has issued the badge, the person who earned the badge, criteria for obtaining the badge, issue and expiration date, and achievement evidence. Each digital badge is associated with an image and metadata that provides information about what the badge represents.
