Take a look at our new infographic to learn more about how digital badging can be used to recognise humanitarians’ skills, expertise and experience’

Digital badging can be seen an indicator of achievement, like a certificate, that can be displayed, accessed, and verified online. HPass uses digital badges to enable humanitarians to evidence their experience and expertise.

  • A digital badge can be displayed as part of a badge portfolio on myHPass, as a link on a CV shared via social media, or on an e-signature
  • Clicking on the badge displays the metadata, explaining exactly what the recipient has done to earn the badge
  • Learners can earn badges from a range of different providers and display them as part of your myHPass portfolio
  • HPass badges are earned in a variety of ways – for example by completing online courses offered by your employer or humanitarian training sites. See below for some examples to get you started.
