Proof of the achievement of this certification is provided to those who qualify via a print-ready certificate uploaded to the candidate’s account at mc-gsx.learningbuilder.com and via a digital badge issued through a partner, BadgeCert. Both are issued once the CMCO Program Management Office is notified by Pearson VUE of a person’s successful completion of the exam.
Digital badges are tokens that appear as icons or logos on a web page or other online venue signifying accomplishments, such a certification or mastery of a skill. Candidates will receive access to their CMCO digital badge 3-5 business days after meeting the CMCO assessment requirements. Information on how to access and use the digital badge will be provided in an email sent to the certificant. GSX will maintain a record of the digital badge with certificant metadata. This metadata includes:
- The issuer’s name (i.e., CMCO);
- The certificant’s name and e-mail address;
- A short description of the badge;
- Other details, such as the issue date and the expiration date.
Use of CMCO Credentials
Certificants are authorized to use the designation “CMCO” or “Certified Mission Critical Operator” once they have received their CMCO digital badge. Certificants may use this credential on business cards, resumes, and signature lines. This designation signifies that they have met the requirements for the Mission Critical Operator Certification. Certificants can use the designation and/or the URL to their BadgeCert page as long as their certification is active. “CMCO” and “Certified Mission Critical Operator” are the only designations approved for use and should appear after a comma following the certificant’s name. No other designator and no other usage is approved by GSX.
