To respond to the need of being recognized externally as a certified risk professional, FERMA has developed an Open Badge for the FERMA Rimap certification holders to offer a unique way to advertise your credential and ensure its authenticity.
- Why use an open badge?
The open badge provides employers and the public with an evidence of what you had to do to earn the certification and is an easy way to verify your competences digitally.
You can share your open badge across social media, add it to your email signature and embed it in a website or a CV so that your professional network is aware of your European risk management certification.
- So what is it?
An open badge is an image file which is uniquely linked to your certification information hosted on Credly, one of the leading third party badging platform.
Open badges are more reliable and secure than paper-based ones as they are linked to data set up and validated by FERMA to confirm that you are a rimap certified risk professional.
Moreover, the badge is free!
- How do you obtain your open badge?
Once FERMA rimap certified, you will receive an email invitation from Credly to claim your badge. After clicking on the link in the email and create an account on Credly, you'll be able to accept your FERMA rimap certification badge. You will then share your badge directly from the badging platform to LinkedIn, Twitter and Facebook or add it to your email signature by copying your badge URL and hyperlink it to the image.
The concept of Open Badges was created by Mozilla in 2011 to recognize the new ways of learning wherever it happened - in and out of formal education and online.
It is a simple and easy way for you to raise awareness and increase recognition for having successfully passed the FERMA rimap examination. It also makes you part of the FERMA rimap certified community.
