CIC Social Media Badges

We realize that passing your CIC® certification examination is a tremendous accomplishment and we want to give you a way to show it off! For this reason, CBIC has created CIC® Badges that allow CICs to display their credential on social media. Whether you are on Facebook or LinkedIn, email us at to display your badge proudly!


One way CICs can use the CIC® Badge is to use it as a profile picture. Alternatively, you could post the Badge to your page as a Life Event. If you are interested in displaying a Badge on Facebook, please email us at and we will send you a Badge along with instructions on ways to show your certification on Facebook.


Are you on LinkedIn? Did you know there are ways to show others your CIC® credential on LinkedIn? The first way to demonstrate your certification is to add CIC® to the end of your name as part of your list of credentials.  You can also post a CIC® Badge to your Summary section on your profile. To do this, please email and we will send you a CIC® Badge with instructions on how to post the Badge to your Summary. Finally, you can add certificates to your profile by following the instructions below:
