What is an IBM Digital Badge?

IBM credentials are valued and recognized by the global IT industry. Communicating your credentials can be a challenge in today’s online marketplace so IBM introduced Digital Badges as a way to easily share verified proof of your achievement whenever and wherever you choose. Your IBM credentials are represented by a digital image that contains verified metadata outlining the qualifications and assessment process you went through to earn them.


Benefits of IBM Digital Badges

  • Combine your credentials to form a complete overview of your skills.
  • Display your accomplishment in your email signature.
  • Display your qualifications on social and professional networking sites.
  • Provide employers with easy, valid verification of your credentials.
