The POCUS Certification Academy Digital Badge Program

The POCUS Certification Academy has partnered with Credly to provide digital badges for our certification and certificate holders. Digital badges help you promote your 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!

What are the benefits of digital badging?

  • Easily share your achievements on LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter and Whatsapp
  • Show your network that you are a POCUS user whose skills and knowledge are independently verified by a globally recognized healthcare organization
  • Enable people to find information about your POCUS Academy Certificate or Certification

What can you do with your digital badge?

  • Share your badge on LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter and Whatsapp
  • Download your badge image and URL to embed in a resume, website or email signature
  • Personalize your profile to highlight your specific POCUS expertise
