ATOL Digital Credentials

Showcase Your Professional Accomplishments

Here at ATOL, we are committed to providing you with the tools necessary to achieve your professional goals and we understand that communicating your credentials in an ever-expanding online marketplace can be challenging.  

That is why we have partnered with Credly’s Acclaim platform to provide you with a digital version of your credentials - yes, more than just "a piece of paper"! 

From 1 July 2021, anyone who completes an eligible course* will be automatically issued their credential within 30 days of course completion. 

What Are ATOL Digital Credentials?

These digital badges can be used in email signatures or digital resumes, and on social media sites such as LinkedIn, Facebook, and Twitter. 

This digital image contains verified metadata that describes your qualifications and the process required to earn them. And as an added bonus - we do all of this at no additional cost to you!  

If a picture is worth a thousand words, imagine what a person with a profile full of verifiable badges is worth!

What Are the Benefits of an ATOL Digital Credential?
