Upon completion of individual courses, all participants will earn a digital badge, representing their acquired skills and qualifications. These digital badges are issued by digital credential provider, Credly. 

Digital badges can be used in email signatures or digital resumes, and on social media sites such as LinkedIn, Facebook, and Twitter. Each badge contains verified metadata that describes the qualification and the process required to earn them.

Representing skills as a badge gives earners a way to share their abilities online in a way that is simple, trusted and can be verified in real time. Badges provide employers and peers concrete evidence of what was done to earn the credential and the skills acquired. It's an easy, visual way for employers to see where candidates have learned and what they can do.
