Digital Credentials

CPSA's Digital Credentials Program

At CPSA, we’re committed to providing you with the tools necessary to achieve your professional goals and we understand that communicating your credentials in an ever-expanding online marketplace can be challenging. That’s why we have introduced digital credentials. These digital credentials can be used in email signatures or digital resumes, and on social media sites such as LinkedIn, Facebook, and Twitter.

What is a Digital Credential?

CPSA has partnered with Credly to award digital credentials for your CPSA achievements. A digital badge consists of an image and metadata that are uniquely linked to you. Together, they serve as a compelling digital showcase of your certification achievements: Clicking on your digital credential grants immediate access to validated information that features your knowledge and skills. Digital credentials or badges, are web-enabled versions of a credential, certification or learning outcome which can be verified in real-time, online.

How does it work?

When you earn a CPSA digital credential, you’ll receive an email letting you know that you can claim your digital credential at Credly’s Acclaim platform website. Claiming your digital credential is quick and easy:

  1. Click the link you receive via email.
  2. Create an account on the Acclaim site, and then confirm your email address.
  3. Claim your digital credential.
  4. Start sharing.

Who gets a digital credential?

Digital credentials are a new concept for CPSA, all members and student subscribers of CPSA will be awarded a digital credential over the coming months, as will all of our CSPs. We will also be awarding digital credentials for those who are awarded with the CSA or the CSL designation.

In the future, we will also be awarding competency based digital credentials so watch this space!
