Welcome to the Linux Foundation Forum!

Digital Badges Now Available for Courses and Exams!

Options

We want to let you know about an exciting change to the Linux Foundation Certification Program. We are pleased to announce our partnership with Acclaim, a platform that will provide you with a digital version of your certification credential(s).

If you are the holder of a Linux Foundation Certification, you will soon receive an email from Acclaim containing instructions on how to redeem your digital badge. This digital badge will describe your credentials and qualifications, and how you achieved them.

You will have the option to display your digital badge in email signatures or digital resumes, as well as on social media sites such as LinkedIn, Facebook, and Twitter.

Going forward, badges will be issued to everyone who passes one of our certification exams as well as those who complete training courses purchased directly from the Linux Foundation.

You work hard to earn these credentials. We hope you take advantage of this new feature and enjoy the convenience of easily sharing digital versions of your accomplishments!

    Hi, thanks for the information. I finished this course, but I don't receive the e-mail for Acclaim for the badge "LFD259: Kubernetes for Developers". What are the steps to earn the badge?

    Thanks!

    Hi,

    Just completed the LFD259 course, but did not get any e-mail about acclaim.
    Is it still needed to wait till the next Monday ?

    Thanks.

    Hi,

    Still nothing today.

    Are the badges generated at specific time?
