Digital Badges

A digital badge is a validated, standardized graphical representation of knowledge and skills earned in various learning environments. Your digital badge has a unique URL that can be shared electronically via social media, in your email signature, on your firm site, in proposals, and more.

A digital badge helps you gain recognition for earning your certificate by allowing you to easily display and share your achievement. Prospective clients and employers will be able to quickly verify your competencies and skills. The digital badge also provides greater credibility and visually declares your commitment to quality. According to a recent LinkedIn study, profiles with certifications and badges receive six times the number of profile views.

Not-for-Profit Certificate Program:

My organization is undergoing a lot of change, especially with regards to transitioning to a new financial management system. We are moving out of a patchwork environment, spreadsheets and outsourced functions, and our NFP accounting is now under one roof. We need to establish good risk management and internal controls; the new reporting needs to be correct. Previously, there was not one spot that had everything: guidelines, rules, best practices. It helps me know that I’m not overlooking anything important. The certificate program really helped give us a level of confirmation that we are doing it right. It helped us find holes, find better options. And we love that courses can be taken as needed. I go back and review applicable courses before audit and budget meetings. When something new comes up, I go review the modules for it.

The quality of the content in the NFP Certificate Program is excellent. The program covers a wide spectrum of NFP topics pertinent to all levels of staff within a NFP. I would highly recommend this certificate program to anyone interested in NFPs or is employed by an NFP.
