Fidelis's platform improves badges in 7 critical ways
If a user learns something important, but can't be discovered through search as a result, it's a wasted opportunity
Degrees are not all created equal and neither are badges. On Fidelis, the badge is the logo of the conferrer of the badge
The idea that one is either certified or not is silly. Everyone's expertise lies along a spectrum and so to be trusted, all badges have to have levels that represent that spectrum.
If it's easy to get, it's not very valuable. On Fidelis badges have clear criteria that has to be met. And our badges go all the way from "Basically Familiar" to "Leading Expert".
In 7 seconds on Fidelis, you can figure out if you think a badge is trustworthy, by noting the brand of the conferrer, quickly looking at the topics covered, and looking at the pass rate (selectivity). Additionally, you can see sample questions at the various levels.
Fidelis's tools make it a snap to build badge exams, to administer them, and to upload third party badges along with evidence that the user has earned that badge.
Badges are all tagged with common keywords found in job requisitions and resumes, making it easy both for employers to identify the badges they're looking for, and for job seekers to find badges that will make them more competitive for the kinds of jobs they want.
