You are also granted permission to share this designation on social media profiles such as LinkedIn, your email signature line, and your website.

Once certified, is there a badge or similar that we can include in our social media? If yes, how can we access it?

Yes, you will receive your PQ Certified Coach Badge once you are certified.
