OKA Digital Badges – Share Your Accomplishments!
OKA has partnered with Credly to provide you with a digital version of your credentials from us. Digital badges can be used in email signatures, digital resumes, and on social media sites like LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter. When you go through a certification with us, you will receive a digital badge that displays your newfound qualifications, and the process you underwent to earn them. The image on the right is our EQ-i 2.0 badge as an example.

The short answer is: A digital badge is a visual, online representation of an accomplishment, skill, interest, or other achievement. They communicate three things: Who did something? What did they do? Who says they did it?
Here’s a lengthier answer.
- Secure, web-enabled credentials which will display and enhance your professional accomplishments.
- Shareable on any digital platform: social media, email signature, embedded in your resume, or on your website bio.
- A source for your credential(s), offering a complete overview of the assessments passed and the knowledge you’ve acquired.
- An excellent way to verify your achievement with current and prospective employers, clients, and colleagues.
