APMG International has launched digital badges for successful candidates to share a credential online and easily broadcast certified skills to employers and other interested parties.
Successful candidates can now claim a digital badge to embed on an email signature, website, social media platforms or a digital CV. With just one click employers, clients, customers and other interested parties can easily view and verify credentials and skills.
To deliver the digital badges, APMG has partnered with Acclaim, a global leader who supply open badges for a wide range of academic institutions and global businesses. Candidates accessing their website badges on the Acclaim platform can also access labour market insights data which tags skills earned from the certification to available jobs searchable by location, employer, and salary range. Applying for a job is just a few clicks away.
"Our open badges are secure digital representations of credentials. Through a single click employers can verify the certification, understand the qualification and something of the process required to earn it,” says Nicholas Houlton, COO, APMG International. “The badge can be easily embedded on a CV, email signature and social networking sites, including Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter.”
Digital badges are available for exams currently delivered by APMG. To access their digital badge candidates must have taken their exam with APMG International from 1 January 2016 to current date.
Candidates can also raise their profile and share their exam success by clicking on the Twitter and LinkedIn buttons in the candidate portal. Sharing your certification success demonstrates:
- You are committed to continual improvement
- Your skills are current
- You are a highly skilled professional
