    Hey guys, did anyone get the email from the ISBC about logging in to a third party for FPC certificates? Something about making them look nicer.

    Seems legit, but just wondering.

    I got it and I can understand why they did it. When I got my cert in the mail it is horrible quality and the ink is already fading after being inside a file for a couple of months. I logged it just to see what they have. They want $10 just for a reprint of your cert. Frames go anywhere from $20 to $55. Maybe in the future ill get it preprinted and a nice frame but not now.

    Do they have the cool digital badge thingy? For CFRN you can put a badge link in your email or social media that people can click on and it validates that your certification is current. Kind of cool.

    Got it today, it's just them trying to upsell ya and pay more money for a frame etc. At the rate they charge for exam/recert you would think the least they could do is send you a god damn plastic certification card vs. a paper one. Have never felt the need to display anything, and certainly not paying them more to frame the dinky certificate they send you.

    Yeah, me too. I will pass. I like the idea of the digital badge though.
