What are Lumify Work New Zealand digital badges?

Commencing July 2021,  Lumify Work rolled out digital badging for students who have completed a course with us. 

Lumify Work has partnered with Credly to provide you with a digital version of your credentials. Digital badges can be used in email signatures or digital resumes, and on social media sites such as LinkedIn, Facebook, and Twitter.

Digital course completion badges will replace paper certificates as evidence that you have completed the training.

Once you complete a course with Lumify Work, you will receive an email from Credly which will lead you to Credly’s Acclaim Platform. From there, it’s up to you how you socialise your credentials.
** Does not include classes we provide via a third party

Digital badges help you gain recognition by allowing you to easily display and share your achievements. As they are available online they are portable and transparent, and the detail behind each badge means others can see what it took for you to earn the award.
Digital badges are especially valued by those whose professional careers and achievements are represented on careers and networking sites such as LinkedIn. According to LinkedIn research, profiles with certifications and badges receive six times the number of profile views.
