What is Digital Badging?
Badges represent your notable accomplishments of achievement, skill, leadership, partnership and community. To start, badges will begin with certification areas.
How will I receive notification about my digital badge?
You will receive an email from Badgr – our online badging system – notifying you of your achievement. Badgr emails will come from the address, email@example.com, and list “ICC” as the name.
How do I access and share my badge?
- Log in to your myICC account

Why are we making this change?
As technology and expectations evolve, ICC understands that the world is becoming increasingly digital. Badging allows you to display your certifications and other ICC involvements (long term including membership, committees, etc.) in a digital way. This is also an example of our commitment to becoming more sustainable through digital transformation.
What benefit do Digital Badges provide customers?
The badging system rewards and recognizes your skill and knowledge acquisition as well as professional engagement with the building safety community. It is an easier method for you to share your credentials. The presence of badges on a resume, web page, social media page or other platform prompts conversation between you and potential employers.
Can I keep my wallet card?
Yes! At this time, we aren’t making any changes to the wallet card process. As we continue to expand badges, we will evaluate wallet cards at a later date.
What certifications is the Code Council offering badges for?
While we plan to significantly expand the use of badges, we are launching the program with badges for a select number of certification exams. See this link for a full list of certifications that will be awarded a badge at launch.
What information about my badge is publicly available?
Digital badges are displayed in an online space that you can access through your myICC account. While the public may not be able to see all the details associated with your badge, they will be able to see the badge image.
Can I choose not to have a badge on my profile?
If you do not want a badge, there is a work around process. However, this process also makes it to where your profile won’t be displayed in our public searches for certified individuals. The best option may be simply be that you choose not to use your badge on other platforms.
How will the Code Council know what badges to include on my profile?
The Code Council will award badges based on email addresses. If you have multiple profiles, you will also have multiple badge “backpacks”. Check if you may have multiple accounts with us to make sure all of your applicable badges are awarded by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org.
What do I need to do to get my badge?
Nothing! You will receive information on how to view your badges, but badges are automatically granted. If are having difficulty seeing your badge, contact us at email@example.com.
When did this process go live?
We started launching digital badges on April 20, 2020. You will immediately see badges in your backpack if you have a certification where a badge is applicable. We will continue to communicate badge expansions in the near future.
What happens if my certification expires?
If a certification is expired your badge will not show online. Once you renew your certification, it will appear again.
