Digital Badge Program

Evolve Security Academy partners with Credly's Acclaim, a digital badging platform, to award our certification holders with digital badges to showcase their credentials. Digital badges can be used in email signatures, personal websites, social media sites such as LinkedIn and Twitter, as well as on electronic copies of resumes. This digital image contains verified metadata that describes your qualifications and the process required to earn them.

What is a Digital Badge?

Digital badges are online representations of your achievements. This is what Evolve Security Academy’s digital badge looks like when you add it to your LinkedIn or email signature. There is personalized metadata included in our badge logos which connects the badge to your personal certification achievement.

Verification

Each Evolve Security Academy digital badge image contains personalized metadata that connects the badge to your personal certification achievement hosted on Credly’s Acclaim Platform. This additional layer of content helps others, such as recruiters or managers, more fully understand your capabilities and high-level achievements by displaying your qualifications, specialized skills, and the process you completed to earn and maintain the credential.

When someone clicks on the digital badge, an overview page is presented on the Acclaim platform.

Frequently Asked Questions

How does my certification get displayed as a badge?

We have partnered with Credly to translate the learning outcomes you’ve demonstrated into a badge, issued and managed through the company’s Acclaim Platform. The technology used is based on the Open Badge Standards maintained by IMS Global. This enables you to manage, share and verify your competencies digitally.

What are the benefits of a badge?

Representing your skills as a badge gives you a way 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 concrete evidence of what you had to do to earn your credential and what you’re now capable of. Credly’s Acclaim Platform also offers labor market insights, based on your skills. You can search and apply for job opportunities right through the Acclaim Platform.

How will I know if I’ve earned a badge?

You will receive an email notification from the Acclaim Platform (admin@youracclaim.com) with instructions for claiming your badge and setting up your account.

What if I don’t want my badge to be public?

You can easily configure your privacy settings in the Acclaim Platform. You’re in complete control of the information about yourself that is made public.

Is there a fee to use the Acclaim Platform?

No. This is a service we provide to you, at no cost.

What’s to keep someone else from copying my badge and using it?

While badges are simply digital image files, they are uniquely linked to data hosted on the Acclaim Platform. This link to verified data makes them more reliable and secure than a paper-based certificate. It also eliminates the possibility of anyone claiming your credential and your associated identity.

Where and how can I share my badge?

You can share your badge directly from the Acclaim Platform to LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook, over email, embedded in a website or in your email signature.

What are labor market insights and how can I access them?

Labor market insights are pulled from live job requisitions. Based on your skills, you can learn which employers are hiring, what job titles you might be qualified for, salary ranges and more. Search active job listings and even apply for them with just a few clicks through the Acclaim Platform. Access the labor market insights from your badge details page by clicking on Related Jobs, or by clicking on the skill tags assigned to your badge.
