Certified Instructional Designer/Developer (CIDD)


Hale Center's instructional design certifications provides a measure of credibility in the field.  Expert instructional designers will want the Certified Instructional Designer and Developer credential with the CIDD mark and a learning solution badge. This is an evidence-based certification. Successful applicants meet all 9 standards as demonstrated in a specific learning solution project described in their application.  In addition, expert IDs will be able to show that they have a professional brand or persona that they use to market their services internally or externally. Successful candidates will receive a mark, CIDD, and two digital badges -- on for the CIDD and one for their specific learning solution.

Digital badges earned through Hale Center may be use in social media, email, and websites.  Your digital badge links to verification site (see this example) where your clients and employers can go to validate that you have a right to use that certification mark and to learn more about the badges’ requirements.
