Using Badges

Congratulations on earning your new e-badge!

Your e-badge may be used as an indicator of the skills you’ve gained in the Continuing Professional Education (CPE) learning environment. This e-badge will alert others of what you have earned, where you’ve earned your e-badge, and who issued your standard training. The meta-data within the e-badge verifies the criteria of your achievement and significance of earning this milestone. 

Your earned e-badge can be stored in Badgr, LinkedIn, and a host of other e-badge storing sites as a beginning or addition to your resume of badges by using the following instructions for two known e-badge storing/sharing sites: Badgr and LinkedIn. You will first need to create an account for each platform if you do not already have one.

Note:  Disable your popup blocker when trying to share your badges with social networks.
