Josh is the founder of CPR Education, one of the leading First-Aid training companies from the San Francisco Bay Area.
Josh Sauberman, Founder and trainer at CPR Education, was spending too much time with inefficient certification processes. In the First-Aid training market, individual certificates must be created and handed out to every recipient that successfully completes a course. Josh's challenge was to find a simple way to automatize the certificate creation process while matching the industry's highest standards.
CPR Education started issuing digital certificates using the technology from Virutalbadge.io. Each individual certificate was created from a simple CSV file upload, and directly sent out to the recipients via email. The process became much faster and more convenient for all parties involved.
After issuing training certificates using the technology from Virtualbadge.io:
Certificates are now automatically created using information previously mapped from the recipients. All certificates can be easily accessed from the dashboard, making the full management process intuitive.
Recipients can now verify their certificates via a QR code, directly inside the website of CPR Education. This possibility increases the higher perceived value of the certificates for the clients.
Working with Virtualbadge.io was great. We had a hands-on approach on the whole topic, from the creation of the designs to the implementation of the validation page. The process that we have now is simple and easy to manage!

The iconic Java Script conference is held annually. Like many other virtual events, the organizers wanted to launch a pre-event marketing campaign to attract more attendees before closing registrations.
The organizers of the event decided to use Virtual Badges as a marketing tool. Once registered, all participants were invited to create and share their badges. These participants had the opportunity to show their activity to their networks and enhance their CVs, while the event benefited from the word-of-mouth marketing created by the shares.
After using Virtual Badges as a pre-event marketing tool:
The Virtual Badge campaign was initiated when the event had 7,000 participants registered.
85% of the badges created were downloaded or shared on the social media of the participants.
With the Virtual Badges we not only create further brand awareness via LinkedIn but also generate immediate outreach effects. We had a pre-event campaign done with them that presented us with great results.
