Badges, Certificates and Credentials

Stackable Badges, Credentials and Certifications

Certificates, badges and credentials can help your team develop specific competencies on a more granular level than degree programs. Organizations can zero in on areas of need, and departments can show progress toward company goals in measurable, quantifiable ways.

A certificate is an educational achievement representing completion of specialized training at the college level for corporate professionals. Creighton University’s graduate certificates represent training at the master’s degree level, generally consisting of 12 to 18 semester units of coursework.

An accredited bachelor’s degree in a related field is a standard prerequisite for entry into a graduate certificate program. In most cases, the graduate certificate through Creighton University can represent part of the coursework required for obtaining a master’s degree.

Organizations can use credentials as evidence of completion of specific training or education programs. Creighton University offers boot camps and test preparation classes to help prepare employees to complete industry tests and exams, and to provide independent validation of possession of the knowledge, skills and ability necessary to practice a particular occupation competently. The issuing institution or association often maintains a record of the credential achieved.

Professional credentials are normally valid for a limited number of years, based on the pace of change in the certified profession. They may require periodic recertification through reexamination or continuing professional development.

Badges are accessible and portable “micro-credentials” that employees can use to represent their accomplishments. Badges awarded through Creighton University show mastery in a range of skills and competencies. Badges connect those verified skills to organizational goals. In addition, research has shown that employees who earn badges for professional development are more engaged and remember more of what they have learned.

Digital badges have the greatest meaning when their source is known, trusted and verified. That’s why Creighton has partnered with a leading badging partner. When you see the Verified icon or official Verified seal on a member’s badge, profile or website, it means that our badging partner has verified that the account belongs to the person or organization indicated.
