What is a Digital Badge?



I.C.E. digital badges are proof of your course completion, membership, and/or program accreditation status. With I.C.E.'s digital badges, you can easily showcase your achievements with peers, colleagues, and employers by sharing your badge(s) on social media, email signatures, websites, and résumés. Digital badges allow anyone who views your badges to easily click to verify your credentials by providing a link to I.C.E. metadata that cannot be falsified or duplicated.

One-Click Verification

I.C.E.'s digital badges provide our badge holders increased value to their credentials by granting peers, colleagues, and employers the ability to view and learn more about the credentials you hold with a single-click. When an individual clicks on your badge, he or she will be brought to an overview page that showcases metadata on your achievements and qualifications, as well as the process you completed in order to earn your badge. 

An overview page is presented on the Acclaim site when someone clicks on your badge:


Added Badge Benefits

An additional feature that Acclaim's digital badging platform offers is access to labor market insights. All badges have associated skill tags that allow you to click on and be redirected to search for jobs by title, employer, location, and salary range.
