Credly is a product of Pearson, the world's leading learning company. Its focal point is an enterprise-class badging platform based on Mozilla's Open Badges standards to support the specialized needs of certificate or certification issuers, employers, and professionals. The Credly platform provides a secure means of storage, transport, and publishing that adds a layer of protection against those who may falsely claim to obtain a certification or certificate.
Credly is dedicated to growing a trusted and secure ecosystem around digital badging to help education providers, high-stakes credentialing organizations, learners, and employers unlock the potential of badges.
The IIA has partnered with Credly’s platform to translate the learning outcomes or experiences into a digital badge based on the Open Badges standard defined by Mozilla. That means you are now able to accept, manage, and share your certificate or certification as a digital asset.
Employers and clients can easily verify your certificate or certification. Once you share the badge over email or your preferred supported social media platform (such as LinkedIn), a viewer can verify its authenticity by clicking on the link that appears along with the badge. The viewer will be taken to the Credly platform where they can see the full details of your badge.
Representing your professional certificate or certification online as a digital badge through Credly is more secure and reliable than manually adding static information to LinkedIn or other online destinations because of the verification aspect. A badge can be easily verified, in real-time, through the Credly platform, which not only reveals the details of your achievement but also deters fraudulent claims of certificate or certification earning.
