NCBTMB Launches New Digital Credentialing Initiative with Credly

NCBTMB aims to help Certificants and Approved Providers communicate their skills and experience to clients, students and employers

BURR RIDGE, IL, October 20, 2022—The National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork, Inc. (NCBTMB) has launched a new digital badging program for its Board Certificants and Approved Providers. Email invitations from Credly, Inc., NCBTMB’s digital badge partner, will be sent to all certificants and providers.

“By providing a secure, digital representation of NCBTMB Board Certification and the NCBTMB Approved Provider status, our community can more easily manage, share and make use of their credentials within their networks, across social media platforms and on their websites,” said Shelly Johnson, CEO of NCBTMB. “Digital badges make it easy for clients, employers and continuing education seekers to identify individuals and organizations that have the skills, education and experience they are seeking.”

Credly, the digital credentialing leader, is providing the digital badges. Credly collaborates with top global training providers, credential issuers, associations and academic institutions that are similarly focused on the power of verified skills and achievements.
