Credentials

Welcome to a new way of managing your professional achievements and learning outcomes. AMCA supports the digital movement, making talent more visible and opportunities more accessible.

Today’s job market is constantly changing to meet the high demands for filling available healthcare positions. Digital credentials support the employer’s need to verify a potential employee’s credentials on the spot. AMCA’s Digital Badges allow candidates to share valid credentials through a digital wallet, Facebook, LinkedIn and even print a full-color wall certificate. The AMCA also provides an AMCA Official Transcript that can be downloaded, emailed, or printed for job interviews.

Benefits of Digital Credentials

The benefit of receiving a Digital Badge is that it represents your skills and gives you a simple way to share your abilities online in a way that is simple, trusted, and can be easily verified in real-time. Badges provide employers and your peers with concrete evidence of what you had to do to earn your credential and what you’re now capable of. Your Digital badge also offers labor market insight based on your skill. You can search and apply for job opportunities right through Credly’s badging platform.

The Value of Digital Credentials

Skills: Digital Credentials transform your knowledge, skills and abilities into a tangible, verifiable tool so candidates can advance in the workforce without bias

Advancement: When a Digital Credential is shared, an organization has a snapshot of a candidate’s range of capabilities, so they can offer candidates opportunities to continue to grow and advance in their career

Management: One place to manage your badge(s)

Security: While Digital Credentials are simply digital image files, they are uniquely linked to data hosted on a secure platform. This link to verified data makes them more reliable and secure than a paper-based certificate. It also eliminates the possibility of anyone claiming your credential and your associated identity.

Labor Market Insights: Labor Market insights are pulled from live job requisitions. Based on your skills you can learn which employers are hiring, what job titles you might be qualified for, salary ranges and more. Search active job listings and even apply for them with just a few clicks through your Digital Credential. Access the labor market insights from your Digital Badge details page by clicking on the Related Jobs, or by clicking on the skill tags assigned to your badge.

Common Digital Badge Questions

What is a digital badge?

The AMCA Certification Badge is a digital representation of one’s skills, high level of standards, achievements, and ability to perform specific job tasks attached to passing the AMCA Certification Exam. Because digital badges are issued and verified online, unlike paper certificates, they make it easy for you to demonstrate your competencies to employers and peers. Each digital badge has a unique URL that can be shared electronically via social media, in your email signature, or on a job application. From that URL, an employer can tell:

  • The name of your certification
  • The test requirements
  • That this is a third-party validation of a skill set specific to the national exam
  • When you earned this and whether this expires

These badges are verified; they’re much more valuable because AMCA stands behind your certification and attests to your achievement. Did you know, according to a recent LinkedIn study, profiles with certifications and badges receive six times the number of profile views? That’s a powerful currency in a job search. That is why we have partnered with Credly’s Acclaim platform to provide you with a digital version of your credentials. Digital badges can be used in email signatures or digital resumes, and on social media sites such as LinkedIn, Facebook, and Twitter. This digital image contains verified metadata that describes your qualifications and the process required to earn them.
