Digital Badges and Credentials

Digital Badges

American Camp Association (ACA) provides digital badges issued through Accredible. These digital credentials allow our learners to present a rich and trustworthy record of their learning to anyone at any time. Put your best foot forward in your professional and personal networks with ACA digital badges.

Digital Badge Features

American Camp Association badges truly stand out with innovative and exceptional features! Each badge displays the following information by default:

  • Your name, the American Camp Association logo, and the title of your course or event
  • A detailed description of your course/event with links back to ACA
  • The date when your badge was issued
  • Because these credentials are digital, hosted, and unique, anyone viewing your credential knows that it was issued by American Camp Association and only by the American Camp Association

And you can do much more with your digital credentials:

Document your learning. With ACA, you can develop your learning portfolio without breaking the bank; keep your money and keep learning.

Add “evidence items” by link or file upload. Your imagination is the limit! Share your course notes, discussion forums contributions, quiz grades, essays, projects, personal reflections — anything that serves to prove what you have learned.

Display on your LinkedIn profile. With one click, let your LinkedIn network know that you continually pursue excellence through your “always learning” approach!

Include a personal or professional reference. Ask a course mate, employer, or friend who can vouch for your learning to share a brief statement of support.

Quickly share on social media. One-click sharing makes it easy to let your networks know about your accomplishments — and to help spread the word about ACA.

Share by link anywhere. Anyone with the link can view your public certificate and only the certificates you choose to share with them.

Set as public or private. How and when you share your certificate is up to you.

Print or save to PDF. File it away, frame it for the wall, stick it to your refrigerator door, keep an offline copy for your records, attach it to emails, embed it in your website, etc.
