Why Digital Badging for Your Leadership Development Milestones?

We are committed to providing you with the tools necessary to achieve your professional goals and we understand that communicating your credentials in an ever-expanding online marketplace can be challenging. That is why we have partnered with Credly to provide you with a digital version of your credentials. Digital badges can be used in email signatures or digital resumes, and on social media sites such as LinkedIn, Facebook, and Twitter. This digital image contains verified metadata that describes your qualifications and the process required to earn them. 

Who Can Earn These Digital Badges?

ACESENCE's digital badges are available to all professionals, managers and leaders around the globe who participate in our eligible programs. As long as you complete the program and meet the criteria (don't worry – the assessments are quick and application-focused), you'll obtain these digital badges. At our programs, we will inform you of the "claiming" process. As of now, ACESENCE is offering a total of five digital credentials for leaders to develop the necessary attitudes and skills for the present and future of work.
