UPPCC is proud to launch digital credentials issued to all recipients of the CPPO and CPPB certifications. These well-established and well-known industry designations will gain enhanced visibility within and beyond our industry through verified digital distribution. Certificants can accept, display and share their credential through email, social media (LinkedIn, Twitter, and Facebook accounts) and on their professional signature lines. The Universal Public Purchasing Certification Council is proud to recognize learning and enhance the verification of our credentialing programs in this innovative method.
There is no fee for this service and acceptance of your badges is entirely up to you.
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 established a program 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.
