On July 17th, we will be decommissioning the badges and downloadable certificates available directly through your certification profile on redhat.com. We recently announced that Red Hat Certified Professionals can now access and share their achievements using digital credentials with the world through the leading digital credentialing platform, Credly.
After successfully passing a Red Hat Certification exam and updating your Red Hat account profile page to request a Red Hat Certification digital credential, you will receive an email notification directly from Credly with instructions on how to accept and begin sharing your Red Hat digital badge. The acceptance of the Red Hat Certification digital badge is completely optional.
Follow these steps to claim your badge:
- If you haven’t already, create a redhat.com account.
- If you’re a Red Hat Certified Professional, you must then associate your certification ID with your redhat.com account login in order for the certification to be validated on the Red Hat Certification verification page or found in a search. Here are the steps to associate a certification ID with a Red Hat account.
- Once you have your certification ID and account associated, go to Privacy Settings within your Certification Profile and check the box to confirm that you would like Red Hat to issue you a Red Hat Certification digital badge and downloadable certificate. This is required and signifies that you give Red Hat permission to share your name, email and Red Hat issued Certification ID with Credly.
Once you’ve completed these steps, your information will then be shared with Credly and they will send you an email with instructions about how to accept and begin sharing your new Red Hat Certification digital badge.
