You can also explore a complete list of badges by going to the “Recommendations” tab at the top of the home page, and then navigate down to “Badge courses.”

 

 

This will show you a comprehensive list of badges on SkillsBuild for Students. It includes details on the amount of time that is required to complete that badges, how many courses or modules are required for each badge, an image of the badge, a list of available languages, and a direct link to the badges learning plan.

After clicking on an area that interests you, you will see a list of “Recommended badge” for that topic.
