Badge Instructions

Badge is a 3 hour training course located in Blackboard. It is required before you can register for online classes. It does not go on your transcript, and there is no fee for Badge.

To get registered, go to augustatech.blackboard.com.

Fill out the Blackboard Help form and choose Leave a Message. In the space for Your Question, put Enroll me in Badge. Make sure you put the correct Student ID. You will be enrolled in Badge within the next hour, or on the next business day if your request is made outside of business hours.

Example:

A right marginated, vertical, rectangular light grey box with the title "Blackboard Help" in black text on a darker grey bar is to the left of a square light grey box with a portion of the Augusta Technical College logo in Black above a button with "Login" in teal font. The Blackboard Help box contains a form to submit information about problems with Blackboard with the requested information being the user's FULL NAME and COLLEGE EMAIL. The available fields are: Name, Email, Phone, Your Question, Subject/Course, Student ID(900#), and Alternate Email for Contact Purposes with a "Leave a message" button below.
