Cisco's New Digital Badge Offering

Cisco certifications are recognized and respected globally, and Cisco want to help you communicate your credentials in an ever-expanding online marketplace. That is why the Certs and Labs team is excited about the recent launch of Cisco's digital badges as the latest benefit offered to all active and Emeritus Associate, Professional, and Expert level certification holders. This is an important initiative in the digitization of Cisco certification program and represents Cisco commitment to providing you with the tools necessary to achieve your professional goals.

Cisco has partnered with Acclaim, a badging platform from Pearson VUE, to provide you with:

  • a web-enabled version of your credential that can be shared online
  • labor market insights that connect your skills to jobs
  • a trusted method for real-time credential verification

Your Cisco certifications will be represented with a digital image which contains verified metadata that describes your credential and the process required to earn it. The badge will also connect you to current job openings based on the skills identified on the badge.
Representing credentials as a badge gives you the ability to share your achievements 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 did to earn your credential.
