BCSP Highlighting Credential Holders' Achievements with Digital Badges

Published on Thursday, February 7, 2019

As part of BCSP's ongoing mission to advance the safety profession, and in celebration of BCSP's 50th anniversary, digital badges have been created and are being made available to all BCSP credential holders. The digital badges prominently display achievement of a BCSP certification or designation, provide a convenient method of verification, allow easy access to information about the value of the holder's credentials, and are free to use.

The digital badges will be available for use in email, social media, web pages containing credential holders’ information, and more. A badge is available for each credential. Viewers are able to click on the badge for more information regarding the credential and the certificant.

Along with status confirmation, the digital badges contain a description of the merits of each certification or designation, the holder’s certification number, date issued, recertification cycle dates, and expiration date. The badges also contain a list of the requirements needed to earn each certification, communicating the various qualifications and efforts needed to obtain and maintain each certification or designation.

The digital badges will also serve to prevent fraudulent use of credentials, being exclusively available to credential holders.

“This new tool will help strengthen awareness of safety certification, provide recognition for both BCSP credentials and credential holders, protect the validity of certification, and deliver further value to our certificants,” says BCSP’s Chief Executive Officer, Treasa Turnbeaugh, PhD, MBA, CSP, ASP, CET, CAE, IOM.

Credential holders may access their digital badges by visiting bcsp.org, signing in to My Profile, and selecting "My Badge(s)" from the menu.
