If you happen to be a SAS credential holder, like most candidates, you have invested a lot of time and effort in earning your SAS certification. Wouldn’t it be great if you could broadcast and manage verifiable proof of your achievement where you want and when you want? That’s where digital badging comes in.
The SAS Global Certification program has partnered with Acclaim, a part of Pearson, to provide SAS users who pass SAS certification exams with a digital version of their SAS credentials. This digital badge can be used in email signatures, digital resumes, and on social media sites such as LinkedIn, Facebook, and Twitter. This new functionality is available to all SAS users earning certifications at no cost.
The Acclaim digital badging platform provides:
- A web-enabled version of your credential that can be shared online
- Labor market insights that relate your skills to jobs
- A trusted method for real-time credential verification
- Complete user control of if/when/where your digital badge is displayed
Here’s how it works. When you earn a SAS certification, you will receive an email invitation from Acclaim to accept your digital badge associated with your specific SAS certification. You may then choose to share this badge on your LinkedIn and Facebook accounts, for example. Someone viewing your social accounts can then click on your badge to view verified metadata that confirms that SAS issued the certification, when it was issued, and the requirements of earning the credential.
