By nature, a digital badge is intended to be securely displayed on the Internet or via digital/social media. However, we understand that there may be the need to print your badge. Badges can generate printable .pdf certificates, but only if the issuing organization has set-up the .pdf certificate option. Please contact the issuing organization about this option.
To add your digital badge to a resume, website or email signature: save the image from the badge issuance email, insert the image into the document, right click the picture and select ‘add hyperlink’. Add the URL address of the badge as the hyperlink. Even within a resume or other PDF documents, the image can be designed to hyperlink to the badge URL. The badge URL is the bcert.com URL. If you do not have it, login and you can locate it in your BadgeCert portfolio. Detailed guides about how to display your badges can be found in the User Guides section on this page.
Please visit the User Guides and follow the instructions in the “Creating Email Signatures” section. You will need to have a downloaded .jpeg or .png of the badge icon (right-click the image and save it) and the badge URL handy. Here are the basics:
There are two ways you can add your badge to your LinkedIn profile.
Option 1: Check if the email you received for your badge has the LinkedIn ‘Add to profile’ button. If yes, then click on “Add to profile” button in the email you received and follow the LinkedIn prompts to add your badge to your profile. When you click “Save,” your badge will be added to the LinkedIn Certifications section. Please note: you will see the logo for the issuing organization and a link to your badge in ‘See Credential.’ LinkedIn does not show your badge image until the link is clicked. In addition, you may want to DISABLE pop-up blocker when trying to share your badges with social networks.
Option 2: Visit badgecert.com and login with your credentials. Click on the badge -> Click on the ‘Share’ button -> Click on ‘Add to Profile’ or ‘Add to Stream’ button. You can then follow the prompts on Linkedin.
Visit the user guides for more information on sharing.
Please note you will see only the logo for the issuing organization and a link to your badge will be accessed from the ‘See Credential’ button. This is the default setting for LinkedIn.
BadgeCert digital badges are designed to be shared directly from the issuance email that you received when you earned your badge by clicking on the LinkedIn link/button, or by logging in to the BadgeCert portfolio and sharing directly with the LinkedIn button. When you attempt to share your badge by posting it manually on LinkedIn or by cutting and pasting the URL, the badge details may not appear as expected. This is because LinkedIn needs specific information (such as the organization’s name or credential expiration date) in order to correctly display the badge details, and this information is automatically included when you share the badge directly from the issuance email LinkedIn link or from the button in your portfolio.
For this reason, we recommend always sharing your BadgeCert badges directly from the issuance email or from your BadgeCert portfolio to ensure that all of the badge details are properly displayed on LinkedIn. For more detailed instructions on how to do this, please refer to the Earner FAQ’s under "Share your badge."
If you need additional assistance, please submit the BadgeCert Earner Support form.
