About Digital Badges
The Point-of-Care Ultrasound Certification AcademyTM Digital Badge Program
The POCUS Certification AcademyTM has partnered with Credly to provide digital badges for our certification and certificate holders. Digital badges help certification and certificate holders promote their achievements to employers and colleagues. These badges are digital versions of your certifications and certificates and link to detailed information, so when someone views your badge they can easily find out more about your skills, knowledge and abilities.
In addition to sharing your achievement easily, the POCUS Certification Academy has also assured that your badges are aligned with our partner organizations. This allows your accomplishments to be closely associated with the credibility of not only the POCUS Certification Academy, but also the American Registry for Diagnostic Medical Sonography (ARDMS®), a trusted sonography organization for over 45 years!
