What is a digital badge?

A badge is a digital token that appears as an icon on a webpage, email signature, social media platform, or other online venues and serves as a digital proof of the certification. The badge provides a link to verify the credential in real-time and describes what one had to do to earn it.
This is what the CGFM digital badge looks like. Click on the badge to see what details will be displayed when clicked on. Individuals' badges will also have their name, CGFM award date, expiration date and certificate number.

What are the benefits of a badge?

The CGFM digital badge is an online representation of your certification. It is sharable with others and verifiable with one click. It provides employers and peers concrete evidence of your certification status and requirements to earn it. The badge also offers labor market insights, based on CGFM-related skills. You can search and apply for job opportunities right through the Acclaim platform.
