What is a Digital Badge?
In the digital age, digital badges have emerged as a dynamic, portable, and trustworthy way to recognize and showcase skills and achievements. With their visual appeal and verifiable metadata, they are transforming the way we recognise our Accredited Practitioners, making them a valuable asset for individuals and organizations alike.
Team Management Systems has teamed up with Credly to bring you the convenience of a digital badge for each TMS Profile you hold an accreditation in: your TMS digital badge serves as an authenticated digital portrayal of your TMS accreditation.
Embrace the future of recognition with digital badges and start sharing your achievements with the world today.

Frequently Asked Questions:
Q: What happens after I have completed an accreditation?
Q: How do I share my badge?

Q: Is there a fee to use this?

Q: What are the benefits of a badge?
A: Representing your skills as a digital badge gives you a way to share your abilities online in a way that is simple, trusted and can be easily verified in real-time. Badges provide employers and peers concrete evidence of what you had to do to earn your credential and what you’re now capable of.
Q: What is an open badge?
A: Open badges are web-enabled versions of a credential, certification or learning outcome which can be verified in real-time, online. The technology Credly uses is based on the Open Badge Standards maintained by IMS Global. This enables you to manage, share and verify your competencies digitally.
Q: What’s to keep someone else from copying my badge and using it?
A: While badges are simply digital image files, they are uniquely linked to data hosted on the Credly Platform. This link to verified data makes them more reliable and secure than a paper-based certificate. It also eliminates the possibility of anyone claiming your credential and your associated identity.
