Professional Badging FAQ


How do I roll out badge-based training to my organization?

Fill out the form to the right.  One of our training consultants will get in touch with you shortly to discuss how a badging program could work in your organization.

Can I create branded or custom badges?
Dale Carnegie Professional Badges are flexible so that you and your employees can get the greatest value from them.  While our competency-based badges are a measure of skills training and competency on an individual level, organizations can create badges that represent corporate learning initiatives like new employee onboarding, or attending a special manager training retreat.  Badges can be branded with your logo -- work with our design team to create custom badge styles that work for you!  Custom badges can also be set to expire.
 

I'm not interested in using badges.  Do I have to participate?
If you aren't ready to make use of professional badges, that's fine!  Badges are offered at no cost to you, and you can simply ignore the invitation to access your badge portfolio. 

Are professional badges available for Dale Carnegie classroom (in-person) courses?
At the moment, professional badges are only available for Dale Carnegie's Live Online personal effectiveness courses.  More Live Online and classroom courses may be made eligible for badging in the coming months.
