The Classical Academy of Arms open badge awarded for certification as a Classical Fencing Master.
Our affiliated center for fencing in the period 1880 to 1939, the Classical Academy of Arms, has established an open badge program for its certificate holders. Open badges are icons with associated metadata that tells who awards the badge, describes the qualification, and includes the requirements. Increasingly they are being used by schools and colleges, corporations, training vendors, and societies to document learning in a non-traditional environment. The Academy currently issues open badges for its five instructor levels (Classical Fencing Master, Provost, Instructor, Demonstrator, and Apprentice Instructor) and for the multi-weapon qualification (including either single stick or bayonet) of Classical Fencing Master at Arms.
