What is a digital badge?

A digital badge is a web-enabled version of our current NACE Institute certifications, qualifications, and NACE membership cards,.

The digital badge allows you to easily manage your membership and certification cards and certificates.  

Some of the benefits related to digital badging are:

  • Accessibility by web browser or through an app
  • Faster receipt of your badge after completing a certification exam
  • Reduced waiting time for certification and membership badges via the mail
  • Elimination of lost certification or membership cards
  • Validation to employers that certification or membership are current

There is no fee for a digital badge.


Physical certification cards and certificates will still be available on a per-request basis for a small fee.  For more information visit https://naceinstitute.org
