You have worked hard for your ACA designation and now you can wear that pride like a BADGE…..literally!
So, what is a digital badge?
The concept of digital or virtual badges has gained popularity over the past 5 years. Digital badges are a validated indicator of accomplishment, skill, quality or interest that can be earned in various learning environments. Upon successful completion of ACA designations, you will receive a corresponding badge that will let the professional community know what the designation represents, the education and testing required to obtain the credential and if it is still valid/active. Many of our members have displayed the acronyms of our programs via a CCCO or CIP after their signature lines. Now your badge will be a colorful and highlighted testament to the hard work you put into your ACA educational programming.
We have all seen countless representations for a wide variety of certifications across many industries expressed as a few capitalized letters, but often have no idea what it means. The value you will received by openly displaying your digital badge is for the business world with whom you communicate to understand the significance of the hard work you have put into attending educational programs and the resulting capstone testing. Your co-workers will be intrigued. Your contemporaries will be curious to find out more about your designations by clicking on them. Your clients will be impressed that you and your company embrace education and excellence!
