Digital badges

Engineering Education Australia is now issuing digital badges for select courses* to allow you to store and share evidence of your achievement securely online.

A Digital badge is a tool to share your skills and knowledge online in a way that is simple, trusted and easily verified in real-time. Badges provide employers and peers concrete evidence of what you had to do to earn your badge and what you’re now capable of. 

We have partnered with Credly to provide a digital version of our credentials, certificates, or course completions. Find out how to claim and share your badge:

How to claim your badge

  1. You will receive an email from Credly ([email protected])
  2. Click the button in the email to accept your badge
  3. Create a free account on the Credly website
  4. Claim your badge!

How to share your badge

Once you have claimed your badge, you will see a sharing feature in your Credly profile. 

Your digital badge can be shared online in a variety of ways, including:

You can share or add your badge to your LinkedIn profile:

  • Directly from the Credly interface, or
  • Manually by pasting the badge link under the ‘Education’ or ‘Licenses and certifications’ section on your LinkedIn profile

To share you badge directly from Credly, LinkedIn requires an authorisation process that is standard for all third-party programs creating a connection between the two accounts. Credly will not post to LinkedIn without your initiation or permission and will only add badges to your profile or post them to your newsfeed upon request. Read Credly's Help Center article to learn more about Credly's secure authorisation process or sharing on LinkedIn.

A hyperlinked badge image can be added to your email signature. Follow the prompts to “Share” your badge once logged into the Credly platform, then copy and paste into your email signature.

A hyperlinked badge image can be added to your website by embedding html code. Read Credly’s Help Center article to learn more about embedding a badge on a website.

*Digital badges are available for a select number of professional development sessions from Engineering Education Australia completed from 1 October 2021. They will not be issued retrospectively.

Digital badges are web-enabled versions of a credential, certification or learning outcome which can be verified in real-time, online. Read more from Credly.

We have partnered with Credly to translate the learning outcomes you’ve demonstrated into a badge, issued and managed through the company’s platform. The technology Credly uses on its platform is based on the Open Badge Standards maintained by IMS Global. This enables you to manage, share and verify your competencies digitally.

Credly is the end-to-end solution for issuing and managing digital credentials. Credly works with credible organisations to provide digital credentials to individuals, worldwide.

You can easily configure your privacy settings in the Credly platform and, of course, do not need to share your badge publicly. You’re in complete control of the information about yourself that is made public

No. Credly's platform is a service we provide to you, at no additional cost.

While badges include a digital image file, they are uniquely linked to data hosted on Credly’s platform. This link to verified data makes them more reliable and secure than a paper-based certificate. It also eliminates the possibility of anyone claiming your credential and your associated identity.

You can share your badge directly from the Credly Platform to LinkedIn, Twitter and Facebook, over email, embedded in a website, or in your email signature.
