Certification Board for Music Therapists MT-BC Lapel Pin

Spotlight Your Credential and Expertise with a Digital Badge

As work environments are changing, the framed credential on your office wall may not be getting the visibility it used to. To assist board-certified music therapists in spotlighting their qualifications and certification status, CBMT has partnered with Credly to offer a digital credential that is easily verified by employers and professional networks. Because we understand the importance of finding new ways to promote your expertise and skills, this option is being offered to all certificants at no cost.

Credly is an end-to-end solution for issuing and managing digital badges on its Acclaim platform. Digital badges are web-enabled versions of a credential, certification or learning outcome that can be verified in real time and uniquely linked to you. Featured in email signatures, in digital resumes and on social media sites, they contain verified metadata that describe your qualifications and the process you completed to attain them.

Beyond the Badge: Additional Benefits

Credly’s Acclaim platform also offers labor market insights pulled from live job requisitions. Board-certified music therapists with digital credentials can search and apply for jobs right through the platform. See which employers are hiring for positions that fit your unique qualifications, along with salary ranges of your peers, and more. Research shows that professionals who share digital credentials to networking sites are discovered by employers at a rate of six times higher than those who do not.

Claiming Your Badge – Our Gift to You

If you are currently a board-certified music therapist – or, upon achieving your board certification – you will receive an email from the Acclaim platform inviting you to set up a profile and claim the digital badge. You can access and utilize your credentials as you wish. The badge’s link to verified data makes it more reliable and secure than a paper-based certificate. It also eliminates the possibility of anyone else claiming your credential or associated identity.

Because board certification exemplifies a significant achievement in clinical competence and expertise, it’s important for you to be able to easily share your credentials with clients, employers and peers. It’s equally important for us to recognize your accomplishments and foster your continued success.

We are proud to offer this benefit and service to our certificants. For answers to frequently asked questions about digital badges, visit the CBMT Digital Badge website or support.youracclaim.com.
