What’s So Great About Your New Digital Badge?

This month in Certification Magazine Matthew Morris wrote “Oracle Certification embraces digital badges”.  Click on the link to read more on his personal experience and views.

Why do we think the new digital badge will be important to you? According to LinkedIn, those with certification receive 6x more LinkedIn profile views.  Add your new digital badge with its easily verifiable summary of skills and we think that's pretty powerful. 

You can display your new digital badge on popular social media sites as you wish. It’s free to you as a benefit of being Oracle certified, it’s pretty painless to begin using, and it eliminates the possibility of any fraudulent certification claims.  If you're not Oracle certified you will not be able to use it.

Did you receive a new digital badge? 

We’d like to hear how your experience has been. Do you think your new digital badge is great?
