Each proficiency badge is associated with a Path Course and earned by demonstrating a solid grasp of the key concepts and material of that course via a formal evaluation.* Typically, users will complete a Path Course and afterwards take the evaluation in order to earn a proficiency badge, though course completion is not required to do this. Earned proficiency badges will appear on a user's published pages and feed.
