What is a Credly badge?

A Credly badge is a verified digital certificate.
Badges can be linked directly with your LinkedIn Profile, Facebook Page or Twitter account to validate your IAFE designation. The badge will not provide visitors with your personal or private information – only a description of the requirements of your IAFE designation, including a confirmation of your obligation to the Advocis Code of Professional Conduct.

To learn more, please watch the video to the left.

How can I get one?

As an IAFE designation holder, your Credly badge is included as a complimentary benefit.
You will receive an email invitation directly from Credly to claim your badge. As long as your designation is current and in good standing you will be able to display your digital badge.

Your badge can be downloaded as a certificate for physical printing or publishing online in PDF format.
