What is an SAP Global Certification digital badge?

A digital badge is a visual token of a specific achievement, affiliation, authorization, certification, or other trust relationship. An SAP Global Certification digital badge offers a visual representation and confirmation of your SAP Global Certification. SAP relies on Credly, an enterprise- class open badge platform, to provide Web-based digital badges for verifiable SAP credentials.

What information is contained in my badge?

Along with your name, your digital badge includes information about the credential’s topic area, the skills required to achieve the credential, and the date the credential was issued. An SAP Global Certification badge also describes your role.

What are the benefits of badges?

Unlike PDF e-certificates, your digital badge can easily be shared through social networks. The badge also provides real-time verification that your certification is valid, and contains a description of the certification. Stakeholders can be confident that a badge represents a legitimate, authenticated achievement, as it links directly to the issuing organization.

Are any costs involved in claiming my badge?

No costs are associated with collecting and sharing badges.

How do I get an SAP Global Certification digital badge?

When you pass a certification, you will receive an email notification from the Credly platform. Follow the instructions to claim your badge. Note: You must create an account on the Credly platform to receive email notifications and claim your badges (see below for instructions).

Once certified, it can take 1-2 business days to receive your SAP certification badge via email from Credly. In the near future, consultants will be able to receive an email from Credly immediately after passing their certification.

Why do I have to create an account with Credly?

Credly is an open digital badge system that provides badge definitions and related graphics, as well as technology and procedures for assessing, awarding, and delivering badges.

I am an SAP consultant. How do I create and access a Credly account?

To create and access an Credly account, consultants can use a personal email address as their User ID. However, for the primary email address on the Credly account, it is recommended you use the email address used for SAP Learning Hub and Certification Hub.

Credly can store multiple email addresses. Once certified with SAP, you can add an SAP email address to your Credly account, and select as your primary or secondary User ID in your preferences.

You can merge an account created using a personal email address with one created using an official SAP email address to view all your certifications. Certifications obtained using a personal email address can also be merged with those obtained using an SAP email address, and vice versa.

How are badges verified?

To verify a badge, interested parties can simply click on your badge to review the badge’s details, including when the badge was issued, which provides them with real-time verification that your certification or learning accomplishment is authentic.

Who can see my digital badges in my profile?

As a default, all digital badges in your profile are set to“private”.Each user can make them visible to others by marking them “public” in the “Account & Settings” section.

Is there any kind of registry where I can be found as a certified resource?

Yes, you can promote your certifications via social networks such as LinkedIn. In the future, SAP may create additional registries and will notify badge holders as they become available.

I am certified for an SAP SuccessFactors solution that requires the completion of a quarterly assessment. Will I receive a new badge every quarter?

Your initial badge will remain valid as long as you complete quarterly assessments, and will be updated to reflect a new calendar year. However, if you stop completing quarterly assessments, your badge will display an expiry date.

Can I claim a badge for a certification I passed prior to 2017?

No, SAP only began issuing badges in January 2017 for selected solutions, including:

  • SAP S/4HANA Cloud
  • SAP Ariba
  • SAP Hybris
  • SAP SuccessFactors

Starting in May 2019, we will be issuing badges for all valid SAP Global Certifications.

Can I still download a PDF e-certificate?

You can download a printable copy of your achievement within your Credly profile by clicking on the digital badge and selecting “Share”. Click on the Print icon and select “Download PDF”.

However, if your certification was issued prior to 2017, you will not receive a digital badge and cannot print a PDF.

I lost my printed certificate. Where can I get a replacement?

You can contact your local SAP Education team to request a replacement. On this page, you can find the local contact details in your country (lower left-hand corner).

What happens if a badge I shared through social media or on a digital document expires?

Badge details will still be visible, but will display the expiry date.

I think I am eligible for a badge, but I didn’t receive an email to claim one. What should I do?

1. Check your profile on SAP Learning Hub to confirm that:

  • Your certification is valid
  • Your email address is correct

2. To make corrections to your profile, create a support ticket within the Learner Profile.

I am having problems claiming or sharing my badge. What should I do?

Why are my digital badges from Credly not showing up in my universal profile on people.sap.com or my learner profile on SAP Learning Hub?

You must ensure the email address you use to log in to SAP is the same one you use to log in to your Credly user account. Otherwise, you will only see your acquired certification in your learner profile.

Can digital badges be shared on SAP platforms like SAP Learning Hub or SAP Jam?

Yes, the digital badges can be added to your profile on social media or Jam:
