FSA Recognition Badges

The levels are: Trainee, Junior, Senior. See the requirements for each and where you are at at the Recognition wiki. Read it thoroughly to understand!

Applications are opened now and closes May 22nd. Please keep in mind that this is the first beta run of the system. We’ll get your feedback and use the learnings to make this bigger and better!
