Communicating credentials in an ever-expanding online marketplace can be challenging. That's why ANZIIF is providing its members and community with more tools to stay relevant. We have partnered with Credly to provide you with a digital version of your credential, qualification or achievement.
What are Digital Badges?
Digital badges are a secure way to display and share your professional achievements. By digitally certifying your ANZIIF achievement you can verify with employers, clients, peers and the industry that your competencies are up to date and issued by a trusted provider, ANZIIF.
Unlike paper certificates, digital badges allow you to easily demonstrate your competencies and achievements online. ANZIIF digital badges protect the integrity of your achievement by providing a link to verified data that describes your achievements and the process required to earn them. Each digital badge has a unique URL attached to an individual - giving you the digital recognition you deserve.
Why use Digital badges?
Learn it! Earn it! Share it!
Digital badges help you gain recognition by allowing you to easily display and share your achievements. As they are available online they are portable and transparent, and the detail behind each badge means others can see what it took for you to earn the award.
You can share your badge on a social networking profile like LinkedIn, embed into an email signature or web page and also shared through an email or social media. According to LinkedIn research, profiles with certifications and badges receive six times the number of profile views.
