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.

How do I earn badges?
You earn badges by attending Live Online courses -- there is no additional cost or additional effort on your part.  Courses from our Personal Effectiveness, Sales Effectiveness, and Customer Service curriculums all provide badges, plus several Leadership courses.  Learn more about the process here.

How do I access my badges?
After you complete one of our badge-enabled courses, you will receive an email from BadgeCert with instructions explaining how you can access your badge portfolio on the BadgeCert badge management platform.  From there you can manage badges, email them to your manager or HR Department, post them to LinkedIn and embed them in a variety of other print and online areas.  Employees who are actively engaged with their professional development are more likely to get promoted, and 6X more likely to get their profiles viewed on LinkedIn!

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.
