IBM Systems Education Open Badges

Program Logo

Welcome to the Systems Education badging page. At IBM, we feel it is important to recognize the commitment our badge earners have made to increase their knowledge or enhance their skills or impress us with their creativity or evangelize our solutions.

Find the details below for the badges we are currently issuing. Each badge has its own section where you can find out what the badge represents, how the badge is earned and what the next steps are.

Once you have completed a badge’s requirements, it may take 5 business days for you to receive an email asking you to claim your badge. Your badge is claimed from Pearson VUE Acclaim, IBM’s 3rd party badge administration vendor.


IBM leverages the services of Pearson VUE Acclaim (a 3rd party) to assist in the administration of the IBM Open Badge Program. In order to issue you an IBM Open Badge, your name, email address and badge earned will be shared with Pearson VUE Acclaim, who will treat your details in a manner consistent with IBM's policies. You will receive a notification from Acclaim at which point you will have the option to accept the badge.

Visit the IBM open badge website to learn more about the company's badging program.
Questions about your Acclaim account or website should be directed to Acclaim support.
