CRDI Open Badge award for Techniques & Strategies in Molecular Medicine course completion – Applications Open

CRDI is committed to develop Open Badges in order to reward attendees who successfully complete the assessments of the widely-available CRDI continuing professional development opportunities, and acknowledge instructor contributions to said training.

Following up the recent award of Open Badges to those who successfully completed the first delivery for CÚRAM researchers of the online CRDI / CÚRAM Partnership initiative Fundamentals in Medical Device Design and EU Regulation of Medical Devices course completion, CRDI developed another of these digital credentials for the completion of our premier live continuing professional development course Techniques & Strategies in Molecular Medicine. Open Badges are provided as a measure of CPD attainment.

What is an Open Badge?

Open Badges are verifiable, portable digital badges with embedded metadata about skills and achievements. They comply with the Open Badges Specification and are shareable across the web (Social Media, e-Portfolio, Blogs or Online CVs).
