The University of Minnesota has partnered with Credly to offer digital badges and certificates. Credly is a leading digital credential service provider. Digital credentials are hosted by a third party and are verified, secure, portable, and data-rich representations of demonstrated skills and earned certifications.

As a Credly Verified Issuer, CSH will publicly issue all earned badges and certificates via Credly. When you earn a badge and certificate you will receive an email notification of your achievement. If you don’t have a Credly account, you will be prompted to create one after you accept your badge and/or certificate.
