Digital Credential Badges

Badges act as another form of recognition to showcase the many hours students spend outside of their courses to build their skill-set in a variety of topics. These are currently offered for the following bootcamps: R, Python, Power of Excel, Power BI, Tableau, Marketing (Must complete: Branding, Graphic/Visual Design, SEO & Analytics and Social Media).

Please note that if you are a part of the Fall 2020 Co-op intake and have not yet completed the Power of Excel or Power BI Bootcamps before the Winter 2021 semester, then you will remain eligible to also receive the original badge until April 2021. To qualify for the original badge, you must complete Levels 1-3 of a single Power of Excel Series, and Levels 1-2 of a Power BI Series.

As of January 2021, we have upgraded our badge eligibility for R, Python, Power of Excel, Power BI, and Tableau to issue a Badge 2.0. In order to obtain a Badge 2.0, students must complete all levels of a Bootcamp Series in full, provide a successful work submission in the final level, and successfully complete a corresponding Bootcamp Challenge. The Badge 2.0 will reflect the new topics, additional hours of learning, and recognize how attendees have applied their knowledge from the Bootcamps to solving a Challenge problem. 

With the upgrade to a Badge 2.0, we have discontinued the original badge offered for the R, Python, Power of Excel, Power BI, Tableau, and Power Hour Bootcamps. All previous badge recipients will not be impacted by this change.

Please Note: Credential badges are only issued to current Ted Rogers School Students and Alumni.
