Digital Badges, funded through the Colorado Helps Advanced Manufacturing Program U.S. Department of Labor’s Employment and Training Administration. TAACCCT grant, offer a new way to display industry-recognized credentials that validate core employability and technical skills for all sectors in manufacturing. Our digital badges are an “online representation of a skill, mastery of skills and/or recognition of expertise” which have been earned and documented within the Open Badge Standard. The Open Badge Standard enables the issuer to verify the skills and mastery through verified organizations attaching verification data and evidence of skill attainment to the badge image file, hard-coding the metadata for future access and outside review. They are symbols which represent expertise and accomplishment, badges.
