  1. For partners who would like to be issued a badge, fill out the Training Partner Sales and Marketing support form. This form is routed to a global partner support team as well as your regional Training Partner Manager. Red Hat Training and Certification Partner organizations  will receive an email notification directly from Credly with instructions on how to accept your digital credential, claim your digital badge, and download your certificate. The acceptance of the Red Hat Training Partner digital credential is completely optional.  
  2. Sign into Credly:
    1. If the organization email has already been registered with Credly’s Acclaim platform, the organization representative will sign in to accept the badge.
    2. If the email address has not already been registered with Credly’s Acclaim platform, the organization representative will be prompted to create an account and confirm his or her email address.
  3. While you are completing step 2, be sure to 'check the box' to confirm that you would like for Red Hat to issue you a Red Hat Training Partner certificate and a Red Hat Training Partner digital badge. This action is required and signifies that you approve for Red Hat to share your name, email address, location and digital badge earned to Credly.  Once this action occurs, your information will then be shared with Credly and they will send an email to you with instructions on how to accept and begin sharing your new Red Hat Training Partner digital credential(s) and downloadable certificate(s). 
  4. The digital badge belongs to the company, not an individual. Upon accepting the badge, representatives will be prompted to share the badge on behalf of his or her organization.
    1. The representative can connect the organization’s social media accounts and share the badge to its networks.
    2. The representative can also use the embed code or image download to feature the badge on the company website.
    3. The representative will also have the option to download a Red Hat Training and Certification partner certificate.  The certificate may be shared for vendor bids or displayed in a training facility.
