Frequently Asked Questions

General Questions

Q: Where can I get a Zerto University account?

A: You can create a myZerto account here. Use the email address provided by your company to sign up in order to ensure you have access to your company’s training, analytics, and support cases.

Q: How do I use Zerto University and Credly?

A: Check out How to use Zerto University for step-by-step instructions on signing up, navigating to your courses, and obtaining and sharing your certification badge.

Q: How do I maintain my certification?

A: Since most of our certifications consist of short training objects, you only need to watch new objects within our certification learning plans. If there is a green checkmark over the video, only repeat it if you want a review. Once all the learning objects have a green checkmark, you have earned the newer certification.

Badging and Credly Questions

Q: What is Credly?

A: Credly is an end-to-end solution for issuing and managing digital credentials. Credly works with organizations around the world, including Zerto, to offer digital badges and certifications.

Q: What are the benefits of a badge?

A: Representing your skills as a badge gives you a way to share your abilities online in a way that is simple, trusted and can be easily verified in real time. Badges provide employers and peers concrete evidence of what you had to do to earn your credential and what you’re now capable of. Credly’s Acclaim Platform also offers labor market insights, based on your skills. You can search and apply for job opportunities right through the Acclaim Platform.

Q: Will open badges replace the paper certificate I used to download? 

A: Yes. Open badges are web-enabled versions of a credential, certification, or learning outcome which can be verified in real-time, online maintained by IMS Global. Because of the added portability and verifiability of digital badges, we’ve decided to offer these exclusively for our certification programs.

Q: How do I receive a badge?

A: Upon completion of a certification in Zerto University, you can give Zerto consent to send your information to Credly. You will then receive an email notification from the Acclaim Platform (admin@youracclaim.com) with instructions for claiming your badge and setting up your account.

Q: Help! I received an error when I clicked on the link at the end of the certification.

A: If you see “Issuer earner already has this badge, Recipient email already has this badge”, you’ve already clicked on the link once and the badge already been issued to you. Check your profile on Credly’s Acclaim platform.
