If you've recently certified you know that we're making changes to our credentialing.
As you know, the goal to make our courses and certifications the best in the industry is at the core of every decision that we make here at SuccessCOACHING and as such, we've made the decision to migrate to a new digital credentialing platform called Acclaim.
While we have already begun to issue new certifications on this platform as of two weeks ago, we also wanted to move all previously issued CCSM and CSCMS certifications to the new platform so that you can access all of your credentials in one place.
What Does This Mean For You?
For those of you that are still working to earn your certification, there is no action necessary on your part. We have updated the Certification Exam courses on the Learning Platform so that they now include all of the necessary guidance and supporting resources to help guide you through the process of accepting your badge, adding it to your LinkedIn profile, and printing your certificate when you have passed your certification exam.
If you have already earned a certification from SuccessCOACHING prior to July 11, 2020, it will be transitioned to the new platform and we will be issuing new badges as well as updated certificates with a new look.
As an added bonus, when you accept your new badge and update your credentials on LinkedIn, we are extending the expiration date of your certification(s) by an additional year (including expired credentials).
What Do I Have To Do To Migrate A Previously Issued Certificate?
We will begin reissuing certificates starting Wednesday, July 29, 2020. You will receive a badge notification email from us for each certification that you have earned.
There are four things we recommend you do straight away after you receive your badge notification email(s):
1. Accept your badge(s) - From the email, just click “Accept my badge” to get started.
2. Setup your profile - It’s simple to personalize your profile from your dashboard.
3. Add your badge to your LinkedIn profile - You can add your badge to your LinkedIn profile with just one click through the Share options.
4. Download your new certificate - We updated the design of the certificates to a fresh new look. You can print your certificate as a PDF from within the Dashboard.

Why did we select Credly to issue our credentials?
We selected Credly, and their Acclaim platform, because it gives our learners more than just a pretty badge.

Acclaim by Credly is used in over 195 countries by organizations like Adobe, IBM, Oracle, SAP, and CompTIA. This broad network, coupled with the fact that the issued badges are compliant with Open Badges, provides learners with a way to aggregate and display all of their earned badges.
Most importantly, Acclaim puts you in control of your accomplishments. With Acclaim, you, the certification recipient, can now directly manage your profile, badges, and certifications from a simple-to-use online dashboard.
