Frequently asked questions

A digital badge is a visual, verifiable, and shareable asset you can use to share your learning achievement or credential. More than just a visual recognition, digital badges add credibility by linking to metadata that provides context and verification for your credential, detailing your achievement, what you did to earn it, and details on where you earned it.

In short, digital badges are a trusted and easily verifiable way to showcase your skills and stand out.

You can earn a SAITMicro digital badge by achieving a high academic standing in one of the micro-credential courses offered by SAIT. Under each course description, the required minimum letter grade that must be achieved in order to be issued the digital badge is specified. The minimum letter grade assigned depends on the course and is based on the SAIT grading system:
