Digital Credentials and Badging


ARMA Digital Credentials

ARMA is excited to now offer our professional community state-of-the-art digital credentials, or digital badges. We are partnering with one of the most respected names in the digital credentials industry, Credly, to bring this new opportunity to you.

If you're looking for a way to share your professional accomplishments in the Information Management and Information Governance professions, digital badges are a quick and easy tool to use!

You can post them on your social media channels, attach them to your email signature and add them to your personal website.

What is a digital badge?

The digital badge offers members a visible, verifiable and sharable recognition of their professional achievements. It also reflects that your education and skill set are up to date.

 

What is the benefit of having a digital badge? 


A digital badge helps individuals gain recognition for significant professional development by allowing them to easily share their achievements with friends, colleagues and employers! Spread the word - after all, you earned it! 

 

How you will receive your ARMA badge


Within six weeks of earning your credential, you will receive email notification from the ARMA Digital Credentialing System (from arma@credly.org) that you have earned a digital badge. When you click through the Get Started button, you’ll be asked to create an account by assigning a password. Once the account is created, your badge will be added to your profile.
