What is Digital Badging?

We are committed to providing you with the tools necessary to achieve your professional goals and we understand that communicating your credentials in an ever-expanding online marketplace can be challenging. That is why we have partnered with Credly to provide you with a digital version of your credentials. Digital badges can be used in email signatures or digital resumes, and on social media sites such as LinkedIn, Facebook, and Twitter. This digital image contains verified metadata that describes your qualifications and the process required to earn them.

CBMT badges are

  • shareable on any digital platform: social media, email signature, embedded in your resume, or the web
  • authenticated by CBMT and trusted by employers, colleagues and industry peers
  • a single source that combines your credentials and provides a complete overview of your skills
  • the new way to access labor market insights to find out who’s looking for qualified music therapists

How it works:

  1. All MT-BCs will receive an email notifying you to claim your badge at our partner Credly’s Website
  2. Click the link in that email
  3. Create an account on the Credly’s site and confirm your email
  4. Claim your badge
  5. Start sharing
