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 Acclaim, an enterprise- class open badge platform, to provide Web-based digital badges for verifiable SAP credentials.
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.
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.
No costs are associated with collecting and sharing badges.
When you pass a certification, you will receive an email notification from the Acclaim platform. Follow the instructions to claim your badge. Note: You must create an account on the Acclaim 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 Acclaim. In the near future, consultants will be able to receive an email from Acclaim immediately after passing their certification.
Acclaim 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.
To create and access an Acclaim account, consultants can use a personal email address as their User ID. However, for the primary email address on the Acclaim account, it is recommended you use the email address used for SAP Learning Hub and Certification Hub.
Acclaim can store multiple email addresses. Once certified with SAP, you can add an SAP email address to your Acclaim 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.
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.
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.

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.
