Chartered, EngExec and NER digital badges now available

Show your verified Chartered and EngExec credential digitally with a verifiable badge.  

Engineers Australia’s digital badges for Chartered, EngExec and National Engineering Register (NER) professionals can be securely shared with your network on your LinkedIn profile, email signature or digital CV. 

A digital badge showcases your credential and enables you to easily demonstrate your professional skill to employers, prospective clients and peers.   

Romilly Madew AO, CEO of Engineers Australia says adding a badge to your LinkedIn is a powerful way to broadcast your skills to your professional network.  

“The ability to add a verified digital badge to your LinkedIn profile, email signature or CV will enable so many engineers to clearly display and showcase their expertise and engineering excellence.”  

“These badges give real time information on credentials, so your network, potential employers or clients can understand your level of expertise with just one click,” Ms Madew says. 

In 2020, Engineers Australia designed and launched digital badges for engineers on the NER to enable digital and verified demonstration of an engineering registration. Based on member feedback, this has been expanded to include Chartered and EngExec.

Engineers Australia’s digital badges are provided through Credly’s Acclaim platform.
