The courses are competency based, which means that upon completion of each course with a passing grade, students will be eligible to demonstrate competency by completing an exam. If 80% or higher is achieved on the competency exam, the student is awarded a Digital Badge. The Digital Badge can be submitted when applying for a job. The badges have been vetted through the Los Angeles Chamber of Commerce and are supported by over 100 healthcare employers.

Digital Badges gives students an advantage when applying for employment in Healthcare.

The Digital Badges include the following competencies:

  • Professionalism, Ethics, Integrity

  • Customer Service, Compassion, Empathy
  • Safe Practice/Infection Control

The courses/competencies can be challenged by students who can demonstrate prior learning experience through previous employment or military experience. Upon presentation of documentation that qualifies a student as having prior learning experience, the student may take the competency exam and receive a Digital Badge without taking the course if a grade of 80% or higher is earned on the competency exam.
