Have you earned your SAFe® Certification? Digital badging helps you tell the world

Community News

We know you’ve worked hard to gain SAFe Certification. Now we want to help you tell the world about it so you can find the best opportunities to apply your training and experience. We also want to give employers the ability to quickly validate your knowledge and skills.

The Scaled Agile Professional Certification Program’s digital badging initiative will help you connect with the leading enterprises and development teams that seek your skills and experience as a SAFe-certified professional. Scaled Agile is teaming with Acclaim, a leader in digital professional recognition, to provide you with a digital version of your SAFe credentials. Activating the badge is easy and there is no cost to you.

Major tech employers, including IBM, Oracle, and Microsoft, rely on digital badging for evidence of what employees have done to earn their credentials and the skills associated with them. But our digital badging program does much more.

Leverage the power of social sharing

The badge can be shared in your-e-mail signature, digital resume, and on social media sites such as LinkedIn, Twitter, and Facebook. That provides a fast and reliable way for prospective employers and team members to verify your SAFe skills. Further, once you’ve accepted your digital credential from Acclaim you can export it to other Open Badge Infrastructure (OBI)-compliant badge sites, such as the Mozilla backpack.

Find the best opportunities to employ your skills

Acclaim also provides a Labor Market Insights feature to help you locate and apply for the best opportunities to employ your SAFe training and experience. Just click your badge on the Acclaim website to begin a search for relevant opportunities by job title, location, employer, job function, and salary. You can drill down for more details about the position and apply for it directly.

Look for your invitation to arrive in the next few weeks

We are rolling digital badging out incrementally starting this month with select certification levels. All remaining badges will be issued by July 2017. Acceptance is completely up to you. You can learn more about the digital badging program on our FAQ page.

Many thanks to Susan Farago, our forward-thinking Certification Program Manager, for leading this new initiative and providing our members with the latest technology in digital professional recognition.

We’ve come a long way together since we released version 1.0 of SAFe in 2011 and began certifying practitioners. This new program demonstrates our continued support for those who have made the commitment to helping deliver the promise of SAFe.

Stay SAFe!
