Digital Credentials

promoting the profession


Show Your Credentials

FEDIP digital badges make it easy to share your professional credentials.

The FEDIP badge is a digital representation of your professional registration status.


The badge will display your practitioner level, as well as the standards against which you have been assessed.

It's easy to share online, unlike paper certificates, and will help you display your credentials as well as raising the profile of the informatics profession.

We are committed to supporting all health and care informatics professionals develop as practitioners and to providing you with the tools necessary to achieve your professional goals.  We have partnered with Credly to provide you with a digital version of your credentials to make sharing and displaying your achievements quick and easy. 

Why have a digital badge?

It shows you have obtained your registration through a legitimate and reputable source. The digital image contains verified metadata that describes your qualifications and the process required to earn them.

It helps you to share your accomplishments easily across social media, your website and email signature. 

It shows that your knowledge is current and up to date. 

By promoting your professional registration you will help us highlight the qualified status of those working in the profession, enhance your professional status and sense of professional parity with other healthcare professions. 

Share your accomplishments with your collegues, employer or clients and display your commitment to continued professional development
