What are badges?

AppDynamics has included digital badges as an additional way for you to share and validate your achievements. These badges provide a secure and verifiable way to share your professional story. 

A digital badge consists of an image and metadata that are uniquely linked to you and your achievement. Your digitally shared credential grants viewers immediate access to validated information that features your knowledge and skills and verifies its issuance by Cisco and AppDynamics.

Why is "associate" in Analyst and Admin certifications? Are there another certifications as well for Analyst and Admin?

AppDynamics Team

Great question, @Shadab.Gaur We do not offer any certifications beyond Associate for Performance Analyst or Administrator at this time. However, we may offer additional certifications in the future.
