Holders of IIA credentials can also tell their professional story on popular social and professional networking sites, personal websites, or in emails with web-enabled credentials. The IIA is using the Acclaim system to represent your credentials as badges, so you can more effectively manage your IIA credential portfolio online. Backed by Pearson, the world’s largest education company, this new standard for communicating learning achievements provides:
- A web-enabled version of your credential(s).
- A place to manage your badge(s).
- An overview of the skills required for the credential(s).
- A secure means of storing and publishing your credential(s).
- A way for employers to verify your credential(s).
The Global Certifications department at IIA HQ takes the security of your personally identifiable information (PII) very seriously. The IIA partnered with Acclaim, which is owned by our certification exam administrator Pearson VUE, to deliver this dynamic program to you. Pearson VUE is already a trusted business partner and meets our data safe guard requirements as an organization that is PCI compliant, and undergoes rigorous review of Pearson VUE’s SSAE16 report annually by our own internal auditor.
