AGS digital badgingThe American Gem Society’s (AGS) Digital Badging Program will make your professional achievements more accessible and visible to a wider audience.

What is Digital Badging?

A digital badge is a graphical icon that indicates your credentials and accomplishments and are displayed, accessed, and verified online. The badges can be added to your email signature, website, or social media.

Anyone can click on your badge, which then takes them to an online source that goes into further detail about why you have earned that badge, the methods you took to achieve it, and how you are working to maintain your credentials.

As an AGS titleholder, you have pledged to uphold the AGS mission of maintaining and promoting strong business ethics, continuing your education, and protecting the consumer. Think of digital badging as that wall behind your desk or counter where you proudly display your hard-earned certificates. You can't take it with you, but with digital badging, you can!

What Are the Benefits and Uses of Digital Badges?

Digital badges identify your skills, knowledge, accomplishments, and competencies. Additionally, the badges can inspire learning, signify community, as well as achievement. Badges can also be:

  • A great resource for networking
  • Utilized in everyday business practices
  • Included on business forms and business cards
  • Added to your email signature and social media profiles
