WIN Learning Digital Badges and Credentials

WIN is committed to providing learners and job seekers with the tools they need to advance their career, and we know that being able to communicate professional achievements and credentials is an important part of the job search process. That’s why we are now offering digital versions of our eBadges and credentials. Digital badges and credentials can be added to an email signature or LinkedIn profile and can be shared across a wide variety of social networks to enhance the value of learners’ achievements with a convenient and professional representation.

Digital badges and credentials enable learners to share their achievements online.

The achievements that digital badges and credentials represent can easily be verified by viewers at any time, and the online view of the badge will communicate its up-to-date status to anyone attempting to verify it. When learners share a badge, viewers can immediately see information about their knowledge and skills. Badges and credentials can be shared on social media platforms like Facebook, X, and LinkedIn.

Every eBadge, every certificate, every credential

In addition to offering digital credentials for all of WIN's assessments – Academic Skills, Soft Skills, and Digital Skills – WIN also provides digital Certificates of Completion for most courseware offerings and digital eBadges for individual courseware modules. This allows learners to showcase the full scope of their achievements.
