CSCCE Digital Badges

CSCCE recognizes learners who have successfully completed one of our multi-week courses by awarding digital badges. These badges can be added to LinkedIn pages, email signatures, and social media, as well as stored with similar earned credentials in a “digital backpack.” 

So far, we have awarded badges to learners who have completed the Scientific Community Engagement Fundamentals (CEF), Content Design (CODE), and Creating Community Playbooks (PBK). Additional courses listed here will be available for enrollment in 2024, including as part of our forthcoming Community Manager Certification Program
