Enablement


ENABLEMENT BADGES

Showcase your latest skills

Enablement badges pave the way for users to achieve role-based certification. They also are a great way to stay current with Pega technology. Community members who stay current with their enablement missions do not need to re-certify.

Complete Missions in Pega Academy or attend instructor-led training classes to achieve enablement badges.

The first distinction is that certification badges are achieved by passing a proctored (monitored live by a person) exam. Enablement badges are achieved by completing missions in Pega Academy. Certification exams are role-based and indicate a core base level of knowledge for those who achieve certification. Enablement badges can be role-based, product-based or focused on concepts. Most role-based enablement badges prepare users for their associated certification badges. For example, the Business Architect mission prepares users to sit for the Pega Certified Business Architect exam. The main focus for enablement badges is to indicate how current users are with Pega technology.

It can take approximately 1-3 business days after your exam date for the exam results from Pearson VUE to be sent to our Pega Academy systems. If you cleared the certification exam, you will receive an email notification from Pega Certifications when the certificate is available to view in your Pega account profile. The email notification will be sent to the email address you used in your Pearson VUE account to register for the exam.

If the certificate does not display on your Pega account profile:

  1. Log in to your Pearson VUE account and confirm the email address you used to register for the exam.
  2. Log in to your Pega account and confirm the email address from your Pearson VUE account is associated with your Pega account.

If the email address from your Pearson VUE account is not associated with your Pega account, confirm you do not have another Pega account associated with the email address used in your Pearson VUE account.

If you have multiple Pega accounts, contact Pega Accounts Support to merge your Pega accounts.

If you do not have multiple Pega accounts, add the email address associated with your Pearson VUE account to your Pega account.

From your My Pega profile, view your Achievements. For each Mission badge that is no longer current, an (!) icon will appear.  This indicates that the Mission has been updated and you should complete the new Mission to earn the current badge.  This is an easy way to stay current with your skills.

Here is an example: If you earn a certification (e.g., Pega Certified System Architect (PCSA) certification) on version 8.4, and then version 8.5 becomes available, you simply need to complete the new content recommended to you in the System Architect Mission.  This updates your Mission badge and you are considered current for the latest Pega version.
