Credly Digital Badges

The Manufacturing Skill Standards Council (MSSC) has partnered with Credly, the largest online network and delivery platform of digital badges. Credly collaborates with top global training providers, credential issuers, associations and academic institutions that are similarly focused on the power of verified skills. 

The MSSC has created electronic badges for all our credentials so certificants can directly access, control and share their verified credentials in both electronic and print format. With one click, our certificants can print their personalized credential, suitable for framing or sharing with an employer.  With their verified credential in digital form, certificants now have many new ways to efficiently and securely share this record of their knowledge and skills with current or prospective employers, academic institutions and others. From key social media channels, to direct sharing via email, to the ability to embed a secure link to their MSSC certification in online job applications, MSSC certificants have many more tools to disclose their credential and be discovered by employers. 

We strongly urge you to share with your academic/instructor community the enormous benefits to their students to accept their badge and “OPT-IN” to the Credly/MSSC platform. Follow this link to learn more about how MSSC Certificants can “OPT-IN.”
