"[The badge is] something that I’m really proud of. It was almost nine months of working on my play therapy certificate and to be able not just to say, I worked on my certificate, but to show the exact classes that I took. It’s great to look at the badge, it shows every single course that you took and what you learned from the certificate. If somebody in the therapy field gets a credential or gets a certification, there aren’t badges out there. This is something new, and it does stand out."
