How to use NetApp Certification Digital Badges



NetApp is proud to launch digital badges for our certification exam. We are offering digital badges to provide greater security to your NetApp Certification as well as the ease of one-click certification verification provided by digital badges. Digital badges can be added to your email signatures, posted on social media, added to digital resumes, or however else you would like to share your NetApp Certification status.


Accessing Badges


The digital badges will be available through CertCenter and can be found by accessing the Badges tab (circled in red). Once on this page, go to Badging Settings and enable badges on your account.


Note:   When enabling badges, if you ever need to change the email address associated with your badges (by changing employers, updating email information, etc.) than any previously distributed or posted badges will no longer work and you will need to update this information (posted to social media, in email signatures, etc.).


You will then be presented all the digital badges that you have earned (circled in blue).

Posting your digital badge


Clicking on the digital badge gives you information about the badge and provides you with the opportunity to post the digital badge to various social media accounts including Facebook, Google+, Twitter and LinkedIn. Click on the social media icon and follow the instructions to post the digital badge.
