Digital Certification Badges


Userlevel 7
Badge +8

Hello,

would you like to receive digital badges for your VMSP, VMTSP, VMCE or VMCA certification - e.g via Acclaim?

I think this would be great, you can show your achievement, clients and employers can verify your certifcation online on the Badge Website.

An example of an digital badge can be found here:

What do you think? Good idea or nonsense?

I have most of my acclaim certs under a previous employers email. Unfortunately when I left that company the email stayed with them. 

 

A valuable lesson for ALL certifications and external things you want to keep after you leave a company, use a personal email, or transfer it BEFORE your move on to new employment. 

You can have more than one email address in you acclaim/credly profiles.

I have badges issued to several email addresses from multiple companies in my profile. No problem.

As far as I know you can change your login email, too. Perhaps you have to rise a ticket with credly for this.

Yes, that is the issue. Reset password, it wants to verify the old address :> 

 

I’ll need to open a ticket but it’s been so long i’m worried i may forget my old email address from my last job even haha

Hello @Eddie Kwok ,

yes, I have learned about the existing Acclaim VEEAM Badges. Hadn’t seen them before. Just after my suggestion was online in November, I have seen the first mesages with these badges on LinkedIn...

But my suggestion now was, to create an Acclaim Badge for the VEEAM Legends. :sunglasses:

Seconded!

After the first VEEAM Legends are announced, I have to repeat my suggestion from last year.

Wouldn't it be great to get the Legends Badge as a badge shareable via Acclaim?

I think, the design of the legends logo would be an outstanding pretty badge….

Hello @JMeixner, I wanted to great a new topic for this but having read through the comments, I would like to continue from here. I agree, one should be able to verify these badges as well.

Have we been able to implement the Veeam Legend badge shareable via credly etc? Here is a list of all available badges: https://www.credly.com/skills/veeam/related_badges.
 

When implemented, this will be great for all Legends and Vanguards. And also Veeam Community leaders may find this interesting.

For better results, I will be tagging these special players@Madi.Cristil and @Rick Vanover @NikolaPejkova to help oversee this. 
 

Many thanks!

I’m personally not a huge fan of Acclaim either @regnor , but I understand its purpose, as has been pointed out - a central repository of sorts for all your certs, instead of having to go to each tech/vendor cert site individually to pull it up if requested by someone/employer (though I have yet in my 15+yr cert career to have to ‘show’ one). 

Cheers!

Fully agree, Joe! Let’s see if we can make it happen :)

If you login to Your Acclaim, from your dashboard it is possible to share your badge to PDF. Today, this does not include a link back to Your Acclaim but I’ve talked to the team to see if we could have that implemented (no promises though).

@haslund: Thanks for checking that. I liked having a paper/digital certificate, but it looks like the digital badges/verification are the future now. 

I’ve also noticed that I already had an YourAcclaim account and was able to collect all badges from 5 different email adresses.

@regnor  I followed up on the “missing” certification ID from the PDF certificates. The PDF is mainly for people who like keeping awards in a frame etc. and since we have the digital badge now for real verification we felt it made sense to drop the ID number from the PDF.

@haslund , yes this is a huge problem with the microsoft certifications. But with the Google certifications, too.

@JMeixner Which certificates have you seen faked? For me, so far MCSA and VCP.

Userlevel 7

@regnor, the fake certificates are a problem I have seen at several times with consultants and admins...

So I think the online verification ist very useful.

And on a platform like Acclaim you have all your certifications in one place and can direct a client or employer to this place where he can find them.

By the way I've just noticed that the VMCE2020 doesn't contain a certification ID ;)

Correct, I'm pretty sure that is on purpose but I can check up on it.

Fair question @regnor - I've seen quite a few fake PDF certificates, unfortunately. These days many tenders require consultants who implement to be certified and provide the capability to verify online and this is where Your Acclaim is nice.


I thought about fake certificates but couldn't belive someone actually doing this. Of course then a third party validation makes sense. I remember VMware had a page for validating their certifications but can't seem to find it anymore.
