Pearson Enters into a New Partnership with AXELOS

Pearson has entered into a new partnership with AXELOS, to award digital badges to members of the new AXELOS Professional Development Programme who have successfully achieved their continuing professional development (CPD) points. The badges will be issued through Pearson's Acclaim platform and will enable AXELOS to recognize members who complete CPD activities aligned to Best Practice qualifications of ITIL and PRINCE2 in a way that is secure, easily shared and verified online. The move means that members who use CPD to maintain their skills and knowledge in project and IT service management will be able to share their professional competencies with online networks such as LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter. Employers, and others with whom the badge is shared, can instantly verify the skills and competencies achieved to earn the AXELOS badges.
