Get Your Digital Badge to Share Your Accomplishment with the World



The Institutes are pleased to provide CPCUs in Good Standing with a digital badge to share and promote your accomplishment. Once you’ve claimed your badge, you can easily share it in your email signature and on social media. 


How It Works 

CPCUs in Good Standing are CPCUs who have honored their commitment to continuing education by completing and reporting 24 hours of CE every 24 months. New designees are automatically in Good Standing from the date they complete their CPCU® designation through  two years after December 31 of the calendar year in which they complete their CPCU designation. 


All CPCUs in Good Standing will receive an email from Credly. All you need to do is:

  1. Click the link in the email from Credly. 
  2. Create an account on the Credly site (easy and free).
  3. Claim your badge.
  4. Start sharing.

CPCUs in Good Standing (formerly known as Active Participants) are CPCUs who honor their commitment to continuing education by completing and reporting 24 hours of CE every 24 months.

No, while The Institutes encourage all CPCUs to honor their commitment to continuing education, no one’s CPCU designation will be invalidated for failing to complete and report continuing education. However, you will not be issued a CPCU in Good Standing badge and your name will not appear on our online Good Standing list.

Yes. If your Good Standing status has lapsed, you can reclaim the status by setting a new reporting period and earning your 24 hours of CE. You can do this by logging into the CE for CPCU Reporting Tool.
While continuing education has been a long-standing component of the CPCU Code of Professional Conduct, the CPCU in Good Standing program launched on July 1, 2016. All CPCUs on that date were given through December 31, 2020, to be compliant with the 24 hours of CE requirement.

Digital Badge Questions

A badge is a digital way to represent your achievement. Open badges, like the CPCU in Good Standing badges, are web-enabled versions of a credential, certification or learning outcome which can be verified in real-time, online.

Representing your skills as a badge gives you a way to share your abilities online in a way that is simple, trusted and can be easily verified in real time. Badges provide employers and peers concrete evidence of what you had to do to earn your credential and what you’re now capable of.

You will receive an email notification from Credly with instructions for claiming your badge and setting up your account.

You can easily configure your privacy settings in Acclaim. You’re in complete control of the information about yourself that is made public. Note that your preference to set your badge private or public on the Acclaim platform is separate from your privacy selection with The Institutes. To adjust your privacy settings with The Institutes, log into the CE for CPCU Reporting Tool.

While badges are simply digital image files, they are uniquely linked to data hosted on the Acclaim platform. This link to verified data makes them more reliable and secure than a paper-based certificate. It also eliminates the possibility of anyone claiming your credential and your associated identity.

You can share your badge directly from the Credly platform to LinkedIn, Twitter and Facebook; over email; embedded in a website or in your email signature.

You can print a hard copy of your badge via the Credly platform.

To Add or Share your badge to a LinkedIn profile, LinkedIn requires an authorization process. This is required and standard for all third party programs creating a connection between the two accounts.

This message is predetermined by LinkedIn based on the authorization scope required to share your badge. Credly will not post to LinkedIn without your initiation or permission. Credly will only add badges to your profile or post them to your newsfeed upon request.

Note, you are able to disconnect Credly's access to your social media account after you have successfully shared your badge to your profile or newsfeed. You can also manage Credly's connection through your privacy settings within your social media account.
