Professional education is a great thing. And being able to broadcast news of your success makes it even more valuable.
That’s why I’m announcing a new benefit to students who enroll in my course, Introduction to Real Estate Investment Analysis. I’m now awarding a digital Certificate of Achievement and badge to students who successfully complete the course.
Here are some questions you probably want to ask:
What does it cost? For my students: nothing. RealData is picking up the cost of issuing and hosting the certificate.
What do you mean by “digital certificate?” Your certificate will be hosted by Accredible.com, an industry-leading credentialing platform. As you’ll see below, it’s designed so you can share it easily.
Does that mean I don’t get a physical certificate to hang on my office wall? No, you also get a pdf version you can print.
What’s so special about this digitally hosted certificate? So glad you asked. Here are a few things you couldn’t do with a traditional certificate:
- You receive a unique url for your Certificate, so you can share it with employers, clients, industry groups, just about anyone.
- You can share it on any of your social media networks with just a click on a toolbar.
Your personal certificate page includes a dashboard, as shown at the left. From there you can…
- Add it to your LinkedIn profile
- Add it to your email signature
- Get the code to embed it in your website
- Email it to anyone
- Download it as a PDF
- Download a badge image, which you can attach to your email signature, put on business cards, etc.
- Add “evidence” to your certificate to increase your credibility — examples of your work, videos about yourself, links to projects you’ve been involved with – and even more
How do I obtain my certificate?Within a few days after you complete the work to earn your certificate, we’ll send you an email with instructions to access it. If you believe you’ve completed the requirements but haven’t heard from us, please contact us at mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org
I believe our online video course provides a solid educational opportunity for those who want to learn about real estate investment and development. I hope this digital certificate will recognize your efforts and will benefit you for devoting the time and effort to pursue that education. I look forward to contacting you when you complete your coursework!
