Communispond® to Offer Student Certifications
July 15, 2016

EAST HAMPTON, NY, July 15, 2016 – Communispond, Inc., the leader in professional skills training, has entered into a partnership with Acclaim to provide a digital version of Communispond certifications. Acclaim is a digital badging platform that is backed by Pearson VUE, the world’s leading learning company. Certifications are now available for four of Communispond’s programs: Executive Presentation Skills®, Persuasive Dialogue™, Socratic Selling Skills®, and Socratic Selling Skills® for® Users.

Digital Certification Badges

In order to achieve certification in one of these four programs, the participant must attend and fully participate in the program. Upon completion of the program, it is left to the discretion of the facilitator to grant certification or not.

Certification badges allow people to post and share their certifications online in a way that is simple and trusted. People can post their badges to their LinkedIn profiles, email signatures, company profiles, or anywhere else they find it helpful to display their certifications. Seeing as these certification badges are backed by Pearson VUE, they provide employers and peers with concrete evidence that the indicated certification has truly been earned, what the person had to do to earn the certification, and what the person is now capable of doing.

“We’re very excited to make these certifications available to participants of these four programs,” said Caryl Bahner-Guin, VP of Products & Services at Communispond. “Communicating that you earned a certification in an ever-expanding online marketplace can be challenging, which is why we’ve partnered with Acclaim to make it easy to share your credentials online.”

Those who have taken one of the four programs in the past are able to claim their previously earned badge. They just have to visit and fill out the form on the page to get started.
