Pearson VUE to release virtual badges to Microsoft Certified Professionals

Digital badges are a visual representation of what an individual knows and a way to demonstrate in detail the depth of learning that was acquired by a student. For this reason, Pearson VUE announced their cooperation with Microsoft to issue badges to Microsoft Certified Professionals (MCPs) through Acclaim, its enterprise-class open badge platform.


Starting tomorrow, Microsoft will issue the first bunch of digital badges to individuals who gain new Microsoft Certified Solutions Associate (MCSA), Developer (MCSD), or Expert (MCSE) certifications or pass specific exams. Retroactive badges will be released at the beginning of next year, instead.

Digital badges are quickly becoming the new standard for showing achievements online and Acclaim badges display the holder’s name, the MCP credential achieved and validates that Microsoft issued the badge.

Microsoft Certifications have been officially recognised by IT managers as a method to measure a candidate’s skill level using Microsoft technologies and receiving an online badges will be a benefit for all the exam candidates. According to Clare Porter, general manager of Acclaim, their “goal is to give MCPs the tools they need to get hired, get recognised, and get ahead”.
