Skilljar, the world’s leading Customer Education Platform, today announced the release of its native integration with Credly’s Acclaim platform. By connecting the two technologies, learners taking training and assessments in Skilljar can now easily receive verifiable badges and gain access to the career opportunities available in Credly. As unemployment rates rise, job seekers are turning to online education and credentialing opportunities to learn new skills that will help them stand out in a crowded job market.

The integration allows Customer Education professionals to automatically grant and manage Credly credentials following the successful completion of coursework or exams in Skilljar. Learners benefit from a seamless user experience, and can then claim and view their Credly badges from directly within the Skilljar platform. Once a learner receives a badge, they gain access to Credly’s global marketplace of verifiable credentials. They can then display their credentials in settings where human capital decisions are made, and match skills to job opportunities through Credly’s labor market insights.

“Credly is a timely addition to our suite of business integrations,” said Sandi Lin, CEO of Skilljar. “Job seekers are leveraging corporate training content to build on their skills and increase their employability, and access to verifiable credentials are essential as they seek out new opportunities in a challenging job market. We’re fortunate that we can play a part in connecting people to these opportunities.”

“As we all navigate a new future of work, it’s more essential than ever for
technology platforms to collaborate in service of creating seamless pathways from
verified learning outcomes to meaningful employment outcomes,” said Jonathan
Finkelstein, CEO of Credly. “Skilljar’s integration with Credly will provide value to
mutual customers and to individuals by connecting in-demand skills to human
capital decision-makers in a rapidly changing job market.”
