Digital Badges offer a new way to display industry-recognized, employment focused credentials that validate core employability and technical skills for all Industries. CCCS’ digital badges are an “web-based, verifiable representation of a skill, mastery of a set of skills and/or recognition of expertise” which have been earned and documented with metadata using the Open Badge Standard. The Open Badge Standard enables the badge holder or badge viewer to verify the skills and mastery through verified organizations attaching data and evidence of skill attainment to the the badge image file, hard-coding the metadata for future access and outside review. They are graphical images representing expertise and accomplishment(s) backed by verified metadata by trusted issuers.
