As we move into the digital age the way in which we evaluate a person’s professional credentials is rapidly evolving. We look to their social media profiles and web presence to enhance and verify the legitimacy of the credentials held by a potential advisor, counselor, or agent. The College for Financial Planning offers a digital badge to all professional designation-holding graduates that allows potential employers, clients, or partners to verify the credential and be well-informed about the value of the credential and what it certifies.
The digital badges are stored by Acclaim, an independent third party, that provides digital badges of many other reputable organizations, and can be accessed by visiting their website. Acclaim offers the third party verification that employers, clients, or partners can rely on to ensure the credential is a valid achievement.
Graduates of the College's designation programs will receive an invitation to accept their digital badge and access the sharing features it offers. The badges can then be easily shared on many of the major social media platforms, through email, on a website, or in digital documents. The digital badge will provide a link to the Acclaim platform which allows the visitor to access information about the program and give them the opportunity to easily verify the credential.
Graduates can still utilize the traditional means of marketing their credentials on business cards, resumes, and printed materials. The digital badge adds yet another set of tools for graduates to use to promote their achievements at the College for Financial Planning and inspire confidence and security in their clients and colleagues.
