Certification Digital Badging

Certified Community Bank Compliance Officer
You worked hard to earn your credentials.
Receive the recognition you deserve. Community Banker University is thrilled to announce that we are now awarding digital badges to community bankers who successfully complete any of our nine certification programs.

What is a digital badge?

Digital badges are essentially a digital representation of certification credentials. The badges contain metadata that describe your qualifications and credentials, including how you earned them. You will have the ability to display the badge in your email signature, electronic copies of your resume, and on social media sites such as LinkedIn, Facebook, and Twitter. These digital credentials cannot be falsified and will protect the integrity of your accomplishment.

Why do you need one?

A digital certification badge gives you the opportunity to showcase your achievement inside and outside of your bank. Your employer and peers will be reminded of your accomplishments and customers will know they are working with a banker who is dedicated to professional excellence.

How do you receive one?

When you earn a certification from Community Banker University, you will receive an email notification and instructions to claim your badge. If you already hold a certification from Community Banker University, you will be contacted by our team with instructions to claim your badge.
