How Badges Work

Roy Group has joined the thousands of organizations and individuals around the world issuing Open Badges, a new industry standard for communicating accomplishments in a digital format. Each Roy Group badge is a powerful symbol of the course it represents and is coded with the same details found on a paper certificate: the names of the recipient and issuer, a description of the purpose, the issue date, and the criteria met.
