CCSK

  • 1.  Support for Acclaim badges

    Posted Feb 27, 2021 12:06:00 AM

    Does CSA plan to publish acclaim badges as well? Almost all other certification providers (AWS/Azure/GCP/Hashicorp/ISC2/Linux Foundation) and many more support acclaim. And we'd like to have our badges consolidated in one location for CVs / potential employers / customers

    So, is there any possibility of CSA supporting acclaim badges in the near future?

    yes i posted and wrote to them about this also. there are so MANY posts from one year ago about this.
    i even had to send my youracclaim transcript for one job to validate my badges before my interview.
    I was deciding what to do first CCSP or CCSK. I am not sure if ccsk is phasing out or something i just decided to do with CCSP.

    ya @Niyaaz Dean

    Even ​​I'm planning to attempt CCSP, but I've read in several places that its good to attempt CCSK, before you go for CCSP
    I like CSA's suite of exams: CCSK, CCAK and ACSP
    I've already booked the CCSK exam, but if they don't support Acclaim. I don't think i'll go for CCAK and ACSP

    Really wish CSA would support Acclaim badges as well,

    ​Moreover, where can i reach out to the CSA folks with this request. I don't think they're monitoring this community thread

    Yes, I was really keen to do CCSK at one point. I have written to them directly and they bluntly said will not be using digital badges on youracclaim.
