Social Media and Badging

Social Badging

Holders of IIA credentials can also tell their professional stories on popular social and professional networking sites, personal websites, or emails with web-enabled credentials. The IIA is using the Credly system to represent your credentials as badges, so you can more effectively manage your IIA credential portfolio online. This new standard for communicating learning achievements provides:

  • A web-enabled version of your credential(s).
  • A place to manage your badge(s).
  • An overview of the skills required for the credential(s).
  • A secure means of storing and publishing your credential(s).
  • A way for employers to verify your credential(s).

Privacy Statement

The Global Certifications department at IIA HQ takes the security of your personally identifiable information (PII) very seriously. The IIA partnered with Credly, which is owned by our certification exam administrator Pearson VUE, to deliver this dynamic program to you. Pearson VUE is already a trusted business partner and meets our data safeguard requirements as an organization that is PCI compliant and undergoes a rigorous review of Pearson VUE’s SSAE16 report annually by our own internal auditor.

The IIA and Credly have privacy policies that govern how both organizations use the information and who we are and are not able to share it with.
