Pega Badges FAQs
Our badge program currently consists of certification badges, enablement badges (awarded for completing Pega Academy Missions or attending an instructor-led class), and event badges with more types to come. For enablement badges earned through completing online Missions, you can start to track how current your skills are in that product or capability.
For more information visit the Pega Achievements page.
Pega's "Readiness" badges (i.e., Pega Platform Ready, Customer Service Ready, Robotics Ready, Sales Automation Ready, and Delivery Ready) are now replaced by a new currency indicator (!) for badges in your My Pega profile achievements page. Achieve your certification, and then keep current by completing the Missions as they are updated.
From your My Pega profile, view your Achievements. For each Mission badge that is no longer current, an (!) icon will appear. This indicates that the Mission has been updated and you should complete the new Mission to earn the current badge. This is an easy way to stay current with your skills.
Here is an example: If you earn a certification (e.g., Pega Certified System Architect (PCSA) certification) on version 8.4, and then version 8.5 becomes available, you simply need to complete the new content recommended to you in the System Architect Mission. This updates your Mission badge and you are considered current for the latest Pega version.
Readiness badges (Pega Platform Ready, Customer Service Ready, etc.) earned in the previous Pega Academy application have been retired and do not display in the Achievements page in the new site. Instead, we have new missions and mission badges available in the new Pega Academy, and we are encouraging students to keep current with training by taking the latest versions of the missions. Further information about the new Pega Academy and badges, and keeping current can be found on our Pega Academy Welcome page.
