Social Open Badging — Now Available
Holders of IIA credentials can also tell their professional story on popular social and professional networking sites, personal websites, or in emails with web-enabled credentials. The IIA is using the Acclaim system to represent your credentials as badges, so you can more effectively manage your IIA credential portfolio online. Backed by Pearson, the world’s largest education company, this new standard for communicating learning achievements provides:
- a web-enabled version of your credential(s)
- a place to manage your badge(s)
- an overview of the skills required for the credential(s)
- a secure means of storing and publishing your credential(s)
- a way for employers to verify your credential(s)
What Users Are Saying About Social Badging
We asked our certified members how they feel social badging has helped them professionally. Here’s what they had to say:
“Social Badging increased attention for my certifications from colleagues. In addition, it distinguishes false holders of certifications on the internet from real and true holders of certifications. That is very important."
"It really improves credibility. Thank-you!"
"Social Badging influenced another colleague to start working for his CIA certification."
"I have received so many positive comments about the badge when posted on LinkedIn. Others wish their organization had a badge!"
