The professional world uses credentials as evidence of completion of specific training or education programs. Creighton University offers boot camps and test preparation classes to help prepare professionals to successfully complete 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 you can use to represent your accomplishments. Badges awarded through Creighton University demonstrate mastery in a range of in-demand skills and competencies. Badges connect those verified skills to opportunities and promotion within organizations. 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.
