3RNET + Digital Badges 

Digital badges provide an easy way to share professional development skills you’ve achieved. They are a verifiable representation of an award, accomplishment, or skill acquisition. Digital badges serve as digital proof of an individual’s competencies. 

By adding a digital badge to your 3RNET profile, you can store and share with employers your portable digital badges that verify your credentials. 

How are digital badges used on 3RNET?

The digital badges you add to your 3RNET profile allow employers to see and verify the additional skills and experience you have obtained. Employers can click on the badge to learn more about that specific credential. 

What digital badges are available on 3RNET?

3RNET currently offers two digital badge options to be added to your 3RNET profile: AHEC SCHOLARS and CRHCP CERTIFICATION. Both credentials add knowledge, skills, and experience specific to safety net facilities in rural and underserved communities. You can learn more about each of these credentials here.

You may see language on 3RNET referring to these digital badges as ‘safety net credentials’, since we support digital badges that offer knowledge and skills specific to the safety net facilities that use 3RNET.

Why use digital badges?

Digital badges provide more context and details than traditional credentials to the knowledge, skills, and competencies you have earned.
