Why claim my digital badge?
Digital badges are online representations of your achievements. Digital badges provide CMT Charterholders increased value by enabling employers and colleagues to view and learn more about the credentials you hold. When someone clicks on your badge, they will be directed to an overview page providing them metadata on your qualifications and specialized skills, as well as the process you completed to earn and maintain the credential. This additional layer of content helps you more fully explain your capabilities and high level achievements.

What’s to keep someone else from copying my badge and using it?
