What’s a digital credential?

Digital credentials are a visual representation of knowledge and skills gained through coursework. Our digital credentials package learning from our Flex courses and can be earned in less time than, and while completing, academic certificate or degree programs. Courses taken as part of earning digital credentials can then be applied to academic certificate or degree programs at CCV.

CCV has partnered with Credly’s Acclaim platform to develop digital credentials that make your learning and achievements visible to employers. After you’ve completed the requirements for your program, you will be issued a digital credential that can be shared on social media platforms such as Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, through a website, or in your email signature.

About Flex Courses

Flex courses are online courses with flexible assignment submission, allowing students to manage their completion pace during the semester. Flex courses remain open for enrollment throughout the first half of the semester. Flex classes offer college credit and lead to digital credentials.

With Flex courses, you’ll get personalized academic support, direct communication with your instructor, and access to 24/7 online tutoring—our signature CCV support services, with even more flexibility.
