Digital Badging with Accredible

By Jesse Wilkins posted 08-07-2019 13:46

In case you missed it, we offer digital badges for the CIP program through Accredible. If you've been a CIP for a while, we sent instructions out on August 1, 2018. Since then, every new CIP gets set up on Accredible within a week or so of passing the exam. Either way, you will receive an email with instructions on how to accept the digital badge, how to share via social or email, how to add to your LinkedIn profile, etc. You can also download and/or print the certificate, which includes the official date you originally passed the CIP exam. You can see my Accredible badge and certificate here:

These digital badges are verifiable, so you can share the link with your employer to confirm your CIP status. They also expire; the CIP has always required certificants to renew every 3 years, but it will be more obvious in this interface. When you renew, we update the expiration date to reflect the new date. 

I hope all CIPs will join me in accepting the badge and sharing it proudly via social media. One of the key ways to increase the value of the CIP is to grow the CIP community, and a great way to do that is to promote it so your colleagues and peers see it and can get a sense of how you earned it.

If you have passed the CIP exam, but did not receive this email, first, check your spam and Clutter folders! Next, you can reach out to me at or and I'll check and, if necessary, get it set up. Similarly, if you got your badge but the name is incorrect or has changed, you can update it yourself or just send me a note and I can do it. 

Again, we hope that this is one more way that we can provide value to you as a CIP. If you have any questions, please contact me directly at
