Promote your ARDMS Credentials With Digital Badging!

​​​​​The American Registry for Diagnostic Medical Sonography and the Alliance for Physician Certification & Advancement have partnered with Credly to provide digital badges to our Registrants. These badges will enable our healthcare professionals ​to promote their achievements to employers and colleagues on various social media platforms. ​

What is a digital badge?

The badges are digital versions of ARDMS- or APCA-awarded credentials, certifications and certificates. They act as a quick reference, offering the viewer a description of what was awarded, the steps taken to earn it, skills tied to the earner's accomplishments and links to additional information about the badge and qualifications.

 What are the benefits of digital badging?


     •​​ Share your badge on LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter
