What are digital credentials & badges?

In addition to certificates, we issue digital credentials, in the form of badges, for each course and path you complete:

Badges serve as secure, verified records to prove your credibility, and can be downloaded, embedded, or shared across social channels. Each badge is encoded with important information about who earned it, when it was issued, who it was issued by, and which specific skills it represents.

We also issue special badges for achieving specific milestones, like completing learning streaks or winning one of our monthly data challenges:

You can manage your badges:

  • In the Credentials section of your student dashboard

  • Directly from the email that you receive after your earn a badge (complete a course, a path or reach a milestone)

Important: It can take up to two hours from the time you complete the course until your credentials are available to you. Make sure to check your inbox, along with any spam/filter folders that you have, in the meantime. If more time has passed, please reach out to our <support team>.

Here’s how you share, save and otherwise manage your Credentials:

  • Click on the „See Badge“ (or “View my badge” if you are accessing via Inbox)

  • You will land on the Accredible site (our certification vendor) showing the details of your credential

  • While not mandatory, it is recommended that you sign in (or sign up if you don’t have an account with Accredible). Important: it’s completely free and you must use the same email you use to access Maven Analytics.

  • Congratulations! You now have full control over your credentials 🎉

Example 1: Let’s share your new skills on LinkedIn:

  • Click to “Add to My LinkedIn Profile” and then “Add to my profile” in the pop-up

  • Confirm that the credential details look good and hit “Save”

  • All done 🎉

Example 2: You want to change the name on the badge. Let’s update it:

  • Click on the „See Badge“ (or “View my badge” if you are accessing via Inbox)

  • Sign into your Accredible account

  • Click on „More“ to have the option to “Request a Name Change”

  • Confirm your new first and last name that you want to see on your certificate and you’re all done – the updated credential will be automatically sent to your inbox
