Frequently Asked Questions
Open badges are web-enabled versions of a credential, certification, or learning outcome that can be verified online, in real-time.
We have partnered with Credly to translate the knowledge, skills, and experience you’ve validated through the HCQM Exam into a badge, issued and managed through the company digital badging platform. The technology Credly uses is based on the Open Badge Standards maintained by IMS Global. This enables you to manage, share, and verify your competencies digitally.
Representing your skills as a badge gives you a way to share your abilities 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 had to do to earn your credential and what you’re now capable of. Credly also offers labor market insights, based on your skills. You can search and apply for job opportunities right through Credly.
