Acclaim Digital Badge Program
Share Your Credentials With Digital Badges!
We're excited to announce an exciting new partnership with Acclaim that will provide you with a digital version of your Canadian Institute of Management designations (C.I.M./C.Mgr.). We hope you'll take advantage of this new membership feature. We believe it enhances the value of your membership and designation(s) with a convenient and professional recognition program.
What is Acclaim?
Acclaim is a digital badging platform. Acclaim has issued millions of badges from reputable organizations for career-advancing achievements that help individuals move forward professionally.
What is a badge?
A badge issued through Acclaim is a digital representation of a learning outcome, experience or competency. Badges can be shared and verified online in a way that is easy and secure. They contain detailed information that provides context around what exactly was achieved, which organization recognizes the achievement, and the individual who earned the recognition.
Digital badges empower managers to stand out as experts in their industry and provide verified credibility.
How do I receive a badge?
Once you have been issued a badge from CIM | Chartered Managers Canada, you will receive an email notification from Acclaim (firstname.lastname@example.org). While most organizations issue badges as soon as your certification is complete, please allow a few business days between earning this badge and for the badge acceptance email to arrive. That notification email will include instructions for accepting your badge.
How are digital badges useful?
If you've been issued a badge through Acclaim, it's because you've earned recognition for your C.I.M. and/or C.Mgr. designation. With our secure digital certification badges, your management credentials, skills and experience can be easily verified and shared with employers, colleagues and recruiters. They allow you to easily and efficiently manage and share your professional achievements. Take credit for your abilities and increase your chances of being noticed by your network and potential employers by displaying your badge over LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter and other online destinations. You earned it, now share it!
Why do these badges have an expiry date?
Digital badges, like your C.I.M./C.Mgr. designation, are contingent on your continued paid membership with CIM | Chartered Managers Canada. If you do not renew your membership on time, your badge will expire. A badge is renewed when your CIM membership is renewed.
