Are you getting bombarded with badges from CompTIA??  Does that give us "Respect My Authoriti !!!" privilege?  Perhaps we better ask Cartman, LOL

So how are you gonna use your badge?  Scan it & put it on your work signature?  Put it on your resume?  Have polo shirts made with the "badge"??  or cut them out and put them in your wallet so when there is a "certification" situation, you can show your badge to the user inquiring about CompTIA certs...heh

I just kidding around here, btw...I just thought we needed some sarcastic humor in here once in a while.

Cheers & Hi5!

    I hear there’s a company that makes custom toilet paper based on an image of your choosing...

    Lol... the notifications from Comptia were a bit overwhelming. 

    I am glad Comptia finally joined the "badge" brigade. Now I can send potential employers a link to my Acclaim page instead of verification codes for individual certs.

    I saw their press release yesterday. Are you getting a badge for every certification, or even more "milestones"?

    I received 9 of them . . I think I will delete a couple.

    @Meggo

    You get one for each active* certificate including stackable certificates.

    I remember reading somewhere on the Internet, I forget where (Reddit?), that someone had confronted CompTIA on why they had no Acclaim badges. CompTIA's response was along the lines of "Acclaim badges, what are those?" I believe that was earlier this year. Fast forward several weeks/months and here we are lol.

    I've only received an acclaim badge email for my PenTest+, which is my only unexpired CompTIA cert. No acclaim love for my legacy CompTIA certs?

    Ah.  I had gotten an Acclaim badge for my SSCP, but then this week got loads of notifications on CompTIA.  I thought they had already been on the Acclaim badge wagon, but guess not.  I dunno whether Acclaim would become the standard for prospective employers to verify certifications are current and legit.  Maybe others know better than I.  I do think, if employers did take it seriously and use it, that a centralized database could at least help employers know if a professional is actually staying current with the certs they list on their resume, since so many certs require CEUs these days.  May help those of us competing for job roles where others are putting expired certs on their resumes, but I'd wonder if recruiters, HR, and employers will use a service like Acclaim very much.

    Log in to your Acclaim account to get all your badges even though you may not have received email for all your certs. All my CompTIA certs now have badges. However, I now have two Acclaim account (personal and work email). You can transfer the badges from multiple accounts using the Manage Profile > Accounting Settings > Merge Account feature.

    I have received so many of them recently that I actually brought it up in the class I was teaching last week (CompTIA Network+).

    This is ridiculous!  I received 8 emails from them just today.  Holy crap, Batman, this is too much.  Almost makes me regret getting so many CompTIA certs.  Now on to why hasn't Axelos and Microsoft correctly given me my well earned Acclaim badges!

    I started getting emails from my lifetime certs. I have no intent to use them or the GIAC badges. The letters are enough and if someone wants to verify, each vendor has a process. That's on them, not us IMO.
